Recognizing A Job Well Done

Each year, employees are encouraged to nominate their colleagues for exemplary teaching and learning, stemming from the Portrait of a Learner model. For the 2020-21 school year, a PoL award in each focus area is offered, along with an “Above and Beyond” award for support/classified staff. These awards are designed to recognize those who embody the characteristics of the Portrait of a Learner model and the specific focus areas within it.

To nominate someone, simply fill out the form below (you will be directed to a Google Form to fill out the the short questionnaire) and submit it by Wednesday, May 12 at 4 p.m. A person can nominate multiple peers across the different categories. Selected award winners will be notified via email and phone, with a district-wide email and website posting going out with all award recipients.

Questions regarding the forms and/or the award process can be directed to Human Resources, 278-0470. Thank you for your help in recognizing your peers for their hard work!
