Want to recognize a Spring ISD employee for doing a great job?
Here’s your chance: You can nominate anyone serving in the district, including teachers, custodians, secretaries, clerks, mechanics, bus drivers, librarians, nurses, counselors, etc., for an Employee Excellence Award.
Awarded by the Spring ISD Board of Trustees each month during the school year, the award recognizes district employees who exemplify the district’s guiding principles and core values. Only one employee will be selected for this prestigious award each month. Among the monthly winners, one will be named as the grand prize recipient at the Spring ISD Employee Recognition Banquet in May. The only employees not eligible for this award are Cabinet members and the Spring ISD Board of Trustees.
We’re looking for employees who are bringing the Spring ISD mission to life and helping us reach each and every Spring ISD student. An example of a perfect nomination would be:
- A teacher who is working extra hours to help her campus prepare for upcoming STAAR testing
- A bus driver who volunteers to read at an elementary school when not scheduled
- A finance employee who serves on the board of a local community nonprofit that supports Spring ISD students
These examples are only a start. There are many Spring ISD team members who are doing excellent work every single day.
To nominate them for the Spring ISD Board of Trustees Employee Excellence Award, complete the online recognition nomination form.
A successful nomination will include as much detail as possible to describe why the person should be considered for an award. Tell the story of that employee to the Board of Trustees by giving specific examples of excellent work and dedicated service to the district.
