Awards and Honors of Staff
The Vision of Excellence award is given each year to employees of the district who: "demonstrate leadership on a consistent basis, demonstrate commitment to continuous improvement on a consistent basis, demonstrate commitment to customer focus on a consistent basis and demonstrate commitment to teamwork in supporting the vision, mission, and goals of the school district on a consistent basis."
This is the criteria listed on the letter of explanation. The award was the real basis for the creation of the Foundation, back in 1987. We wanted to recognize the excellent employees and support staff of JPS. Each year 10 certified and 4 classified employees are recipient of the VOE. District Teacher of the Year is automatically a winner. They each receive a cash award from the Foundation in addition to the recognition. Nominations are taken in April for the award, to be handed out in August.
