Gold Star for Excellence Awards

Purpose: To create an environment where central office staff in a school district give excellence awards to people doing things right. Many times the mid-management role in a school district involves carrying messages which are legalistic and controlling in their implication. By using central office staff as recognizers, however, we encourage them to find out what is going on “in the trenches” by dedicated employees doing their regular work in an exemplary manner.

This can lead to desirable results: the central office staff visits are welcomed because they often result in staff recognition and excellence awards, and the administrator feels like he or she is making a difference by being an encourager and a motivator of excellence awards. The excellence awards also establish the expectation that if an individual or department works at meeting the criteria, they will be recognized for their achievements.

Description: A gold star trophy, lapel pin and plaque

Eligibility: District or school staff members, students, or parents

Presentation: To be determined by the principal (in class, a faculty meeting, or awards assembly)

Observations: The focus of the excellence awards is to recognize individuals for their contributions and to involve the essential central office staff or principal of the school in the presentation of the excellence awards. A master list of “Gold Star” recipients would be maintained on display in the boardroom of the school or school district. Nomination forms should be available in employee lunch areas and from supervisory personnel.
