Applications are being accepted for the Westerville City Schools A+ Employee Recognition Program, which celebrates extraordinary staff members. Honorees will be invited to attend a Board of Education meeting where the superintendent and board members will recognize their contributions. Awards are presented twice during each school year – once in the fall, and once in the spring – to employees who distinguish themselves through a single or ongoing demonstration of exemplary performance. The selection committee’s decision is guided by evaluating how each nominee’s actions demonstrate:
- Support of the district’s Mission Statement, which is, “To prepare students to contribute to the competitive and changing world in which we live;”
- Willingness to go above and beyond normal expectations in support of students; and
- Behavior consistent with one or more of the district’s values, including respect, inclusiveness, community, communication, collaboration, innovation, nurturing, trust and accountability.
Winners will be selected by a committee under the direction of the superintendent, which includes the treasurer, two Board of Education members, two community members, and the community engagement coordinator.
The last date to submit nominations for the spring 2015 awards program is Friday, March 13, 2015. Submissions received after this time will be considered for the fall program. Not all nominees will receive an award. Nomination forms can be found on the Westerville City School District’s website, www.wcsoh.org.
