The success of Shenandoah County Public Schools is dependent on the hard work of our staff. There are now four ways to honor outstanding staff: Teacher of the Year, Employee of the Year and Team of the Year. New this year, we've also added an award for New Teacher of the Year.
The documents attached provide an overview of the nomination and selection process and some additional details about the recognition. Anyone who would like to nominate staff for any of these awards, is encouraged to do so.
Please note the March 17th deadline.
The Teacher of the Year is modeled on our past procedures and practices and aligned with the Virginia Department of Education Teacher of the Year processes and procedures.The New Teacher of the Year is to recognize an exceptional teacher in their first year of teaching, and is similar to the Teacher of the Year. The Employee of the Year is modeled on the teacher of the year but is open to all other employee groups. The Team of the Year is to recognize any employee group that functions as a collaborative, productive team. Nominations can be made by many different individuals.
Please let me know if you have any questions.
