The Board of Education created the Inspiration in Education Award to honor certified and support staff members who are inspirational to students or colleagues in their roles at PCSSD. The award, which includes a plaque and $250, will be presented to the winner quarterly in October, December, February and May.

You may nominate an employee at anytime. The board is seeking to recognize employees who exhibit traits including leadership, mentoring, dedication, excellence and effectiveness in their places of work.

Anyone -- a colleague, student, patron of the district, board member, etc. -- may nominate a PCSSD employee for the award. The applications will be reviewed by the Superintendent's Cabinet for ranking, and the highest scorer will be named the quarterly winner and receive the award from the PCSSD Board of Education.

Anyone who nominates an employee will be notified that his or her application has been received and when, specifically, the winner will be announced. The nominator will be notified in advance if his/her candidate wins and the nomination will be read at the board meeting.
