About the Outstanding Teacher Awards
The Foundation for Belmont Education implements a teacher recognition program throughout the Belmont Public School district. This program, sponsored by the Belmont Savings Bank Foundation, recognizes the extraordinary contributions made by teachers in the Belmont Public Schools.
Community members, colleagues, and high school and middle school students submit nomination papers through an online form, for teachers who deserve special recognition. An FBE committee chooses one teacher, based on nominations, from each of the six schools and recognizes them in a surprise ceremony at their school as well as a district-wide award ceremony held in early May.
