Brockville – Nominations are open for the 2018 Upper Canada District School Board Trustee Innovation Awards
The awards recognize deserving UCDSB employees for work practices that make the Board and its schools more modern and innovative. It is intended to inspire others to find new ways to better serve our school communities and move our students forward. The first awards were presented in September 2013.
To qualify for an award, an employee must have demonstrated creativity and innovation in devising a technique, tool or other resource that has increased student or peer achievement. In doing so, they must have worked beyond their job expectations.
Nominations will be accepted from UCDSB employees, students and members of our schools’ Parent Councils.
Awards will be presented in six categories: Support Staff; Elementary Teacher; Secondary Teacher; Facilities/School and System; Administration and Managers, and Team/Group.
Past winners have included: a custodian known for his innovative solutions to addressing problems at his school from broken eyeglasses to the need to conserve water; a principal helping advance student understanding of mathematics; and the creative Kindergarten team that led the Toniata Happiness Project.
Nominations are open until April 30, 2018.
