All Support Staff awardees are dynamic support employees who are dedicated to supporting and improving the culture, climate, and lives of students and their communities through their work.  Thank you for your assistance in recognizing and honoring our many outstanding support staff employees.   

    We will have 20 individuals who are recognized as a building/department support staff of the year – 17 school buildings, ECSE/PAT, Transportation, and District Support.  See categories below for a breakdown of which employee types are included in which group.  After each building/department group has selected and recognized their Support Staff of the Year honoree according to the process and deadlines described below, one of those individuals will be selected to be honored as the District Support Staff of the Year.
