Lakeville Area Public Schools Announces the 2016 Friends of Education Awards
Each year the Lakeville Area Public Schools present Friends of Education Awards to honor outstanding individual contributions to Lakeville Area Public Schools. The awards recognize people whose service has been on-going in one of these categories: Volunteer Service, Business Partnerships, Distinguished Service, and Education. Members of the community are invited and encouraged to nominate people they think are deserving of these awards. The awards will be presented at the 2016 Staff Recognition Reception on May 25.
Nominees will be judged primarily on the significance of contributions to education in Lakeville Area Public Schools over the years. Nominees may be District employees or community members who have contributed to Lakeville Area Public Schools programs and services. The selection committee will consider if the nominee has:
- Made contributions above and beyond what is expected in the public school program
- Contributed to one or more of the following: program development, staff morale, community support, student interest, learning environment, or general support for public education
- Provided creative leadership in inspiring or motivating others to achieve or contribute to public education
- Demonstrated continuing support for Lakeville Area Public Schools
The qualifications will be considered collectively so the people selected are recognized for their service to the entire district, rather than for one particular project or area of performance. Any staff or community member may nominate a candidate to receive a Friends of Education Award by filling out a nomination form.
Nomination forms are available in the office of every school building and online at http://goo.gl/forms/eLg3JpLhA7. Entries must be returned by Wednesday, April 27 to Emily Herman, Human Resources/Business Office Coordinator, 952.232.2038, Emily.Herman@isd194.org at the Lakeville Area Public Schools office, 8670 210th Street West, Lakeville, MN 55044.
