2021 Compass Nominations are now being accepted. We have been recognizing staff with the Compass since 2008. The purpose is to reinforce and recognize staff who, through their commitments and contributions, ensure that every student is learning, growing and succeeding. Specifically, the Compass honors staff members who meet designated criteria in the following areas:
- Positive impact on students
- Positive impact on staff, parents, and/or the community
- Commitment to continuous improvement, leadership and/or service
- Champion for innovation, creativity, and/or best practice.
Please consider nominating a staff member for the 2021 Compass. The fillable application form is available on the website. The process is easy - complete the form electronically and send your completed form to Jeff Petersen (firstname.lastname@example.org) by March 1. Please note that each nomination must have a minimum of three nominations and a maximum of four. One nomination form may be submitted with all three/four nominators signatures or each nominator may complete a separate nomination form. All nominations are due by March 1.
We are excited to announce the rollout of our new website! If you have any navigation questions, please view our introduction page.
