About the Awards

Green Dot Public Schools’ Golden Dot Awards recognizes educators and staff who are transforming the landscape of public education.

Golden Dot Awards are given to staff who exemplify Green Dot’s Core Values.  The night’s awardees will be drawn from our more than 1300 inspiring teachers, staff and administrators who serve Green Dot’s more than 13,500 students. As a result of the dedicated work of the entire Green Dot team, last year we graduated more than 1,600 students, the most of any charter management organization in the country for the fourth year in a row.

95% of our graduates are accepted to college.
