Teacher & Staff Recognition Programs

First Year Teacher Award

FUTURES First Year Teacher Award program recognizes beginning teachers who exceed district expectations. All nominees are honored at a reception in the spring and each receives a certificate of achievement. Two are selected as the First Year Teacher Award recipient at the elementary and secondary levels. 


Principal Of The Year Award

Each year, the Principal of the Year Award program, wherein peers select a recipient for the elementary and secondary levels, is facilitated by FUTURES. These announcements are made during a surprise visit by School Board members, Superintendent Tom Russell, district administrators, and FUTURES Foundation representatives.


Superintendent's Outstanding Achievement Award

The Superintendent's Outstanding Achievement Award was initiated to honor support staff members who have demonstrated outstanding commitment, teamwork, cooperation, and innovation in the workplace. 


Teacher Of The Year Award

FUTURES works closely with the Volusia County School District on this important recognition program which honors a Teacher of the Year nominee from every public school. The  recognition culminates in a 900+ person celebration each January wherein an overall TOTY recipient is selected to represent the entire school district. 

The 2021 Teacher of the Year nominees will be honored at a Celebration on January 17, 2020 at the Hilton Daytona Beach Oceanfront Resort.
