staff recognition

We see firsthand, each and every day the many fine people working alongside us in RSU 9. As we battle COVID-19 we have seen our staff go above and beyond to support our students, families, and fellow staff members in so many ways. To recognize, honor, and celebrate the exceptional work and accomplishments our staff makes daily, we are initiating a monthly staff recognition program.

This program is being established to give our staff the opportunity to nominate a colleague who goes above and beyond. Each month up to four staff (up to two support staff and up to two professional staff) will be recognized at the first RSU 9 Board of Directors meeting. All nominations will be reviewed by a Staff Recognition Committee. The committee will make the final decisions on which staff members will be brought forward for recognition.

Nominations will be taken each month, with previous nominations taken into consideration for two months. You will have until the last working day of each month to nominate a colleague.
