staff recognition

We see firsthand, each and every day the many fine people working alongside us in RSU 9. 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 have initiated a monthly staff recognition program.

This program was established to give our staff the opportunity to nominate a colleague who goes above and beyond. Each month two staff (one support staff and one professional staff) will be recognized at an 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.
