Bill Cirone Heart of Education Award

News release

In recognition of Santa Barbara County Superintendent Bill Cirone's 34-year legacy of leadership and service, the "Bill Cirone Heart of Education Award” has recently been established. This annual grant award will recognize an outstanding educator who demonstrates passion for the profession, creativity, and compassion for students — the same virtues that Superintendent Cirone championed and celebrated in his 34 years in office. The inaugural award will be presented in 2018. 

To make a contribution to this endowment campaign, checks may be payable to the Santa Barbara County Education Office Teachers Network. Please write “Heart of Education” in the memo line. 100% of contributions will go to the annual award.
