During the April 3, 2018 Walton County School Board Meeting, School Board Member Kim Kirby and Superintendent Russell Hughes presented certificates to several Walton County teachers for being recognized by the Commissioner of Education, Pam Stewart, as some of the highest impact teachers in the state of Florida. After analyzing student performance on statewide standardized assessments, it was found that these teachers had a significant positive impact on student learning growth. 

A big congratulations and thank you to these teachers for their hard work in and out of the classroom.  Once again, proof that Walton County is the best school district anywhere.
