Rochester Community Schools Foundation

MEEMIC Insurance/Pino Agency Excellence in Education Award

 

 

2014/2015

 

 

 

Why:              The Rochester Community Schools Foundation recognizes that the most valuable resource of the school district is the staff of individuals who interact with students and the community.  It is our desire to acknowledge the strength of those individuals whose exemplary commitment sets a standard of excellence in our district.

 

What:             The Rochester Community Schools Foundation developed the Excellence in Education Award to encourage outstanding efforts throughout the school district.  A $500 to $1,000 award will be granted for up to six employees or employee teams per year for their efforts to improve the quality of education at Rochester Community Schools.  Award dollars are to be used to purchase materials or services to enhance a school district classroom, curriculum or facility. The award must be spent during the current school year or no later than one semester into the new school year.  This is a one-time only grant that is not renewable.

 

Who:              Any employee of the district who has demonstrated exemplary performance towards improving the quality of teaching and learning or the overall environment of the school district is eligible.  Winners must be currently employed by the district.  Rochester Community Schools Foundation Board Members are not eligible to participate.

 

How:              The process is simple.  Nominations may come from any person in the school or community.  In addition, employees may nominate themselves for the award.  The Foundation Committee will select the award winners.  Please refer to the selection criteria when completing the nomination form.  Application forms can be obtained at your building, Foundation office or on the district website.   Nominations and letters of recommendation are due February 6, 2015.  Applications received or postmarked after February 6, 2015 will not be considered.  Nominees will be notified in April 2015.  Winners are required to submit a letter, within one month of notification, detailing how they plan to spend their award.  Award recipients will be required to submit a final report by December 2015, detailing expenses and a narrative summary of how they spent the awarded grant.
