It is that time of year again to honor your peers with Teacher of the Year and Staff of the Year awards!

If you are at a school, everyone should complete a ballot for both a Teacher and a Staff person of the year. If you are at an "off-site" like Support Services, Transportation or the District Office please complete a Classified Staff of the Year ballot.

Teacher of the Year ballots can be found here. Celebrate a teacher who goes beyond the call of duty, who provides extraordinary support to colleagues, students and/or the community and who is innovative and is a risk taker. Teachers of the year get $500 for their accomplishments to spend on their classroom and/or professional development opportunities that do NOT move them on the salary schedule.

Classified Staff of the Year ballots can be found here. Celebrate a staff member that provides exceptional customer service, goes above and beyond, and would be your anchor if you were starting a new school. Classified staff receive $100 for their outstanding accomplishments.

Ballots are due by May 3, 2019 and awards will be given at the HOOT on May 31 at Coal Ridge High School.
