Educators Offered Discounted Tickets to see Florida NFL Teams in Action

~ Jacksonville Jaguars and Miami Dolphins show teacher appreciation through reduced rates ~

TALLAHASSEE – As the National Football League (NFL) season nears its mid-point, the Florida Department of Education (DOE) is reminding Florida’s educators that specially discounted Jacksonville Jaguars and Miami Dolphins home game tickets are still available exclusively for them. The discounts were created through a partnership between DOE and the two NFL teams to show appreciation for all of Florida’s education employees and their selfless commitment to their students.

“Educating the future of our nation is one of the most challenging jobs out there and I commend the Dolphins and Jags for making it easier for our dedicated district and school employees to unwind and have some fun at one of their games,” said Education Commissioner Dr. Eric J. Smith. “We are always striving to find ways to express our gratitude for the courageous work these folks do each and every day, and through our Just for Teachers office we are going to continue to seek out new opportunities to say thank you.”

The discounted tickets are being offered at up to 45 percent off regular prices, and orders are filled with the best available seating. All public school and district personnel from pre-kindergarten through 12th grade are eligible to order these tickets.

Through the Just for Teachers website, educators across the state have an opportunity to enjoy numerous discounts or reduced rates on any number of items and services. Each month, the Department’s Teacher Liaison distributes a statewide newsletter that includes important education news as well as an updated list of available discounts and offers.
