Employee Recognition Program


Have you had a SCDSB STAR encounter? Has a staff person in one of our schools or education facilities gone above and beyond to inspire a positive change in your life, or the life of your child?


If you know an outstanding SCDSB teacher, custodian, educational assistant, early childhood educator or office staff who has done something wonderful to support students in our system, nominate them for a STAR. Efforts to provide an outstanding learning environment and experience shouldn’t go unnoticed. You can nominate someone with the form below and we will recognize that special person with a thank you card from the Director of Education, as well as a special star lapel pin they can wear with pride. Please note that the staff member must be a current SCDSB employee.  

It’s just one way to recognize the shining stars in our education system who make a difference every day in our schools, facilities and classrooms!

Some examples of recent nominations:

"My daughter's teacher has made science and learning so much fun!"

"We are always so impressed by her enthusiasm to participate in gym class and DPA! Her kindness, patience and positive attitude always makes us smile and we are very lucky to work with her everyday."

"This teacher clearly loves what he does and his students benefit from his passion for teaching."

Information collected on this form will only be used for the STAR program by SCDSB staff. It will be shared with the nominee and their principal or supervisor; and the nomination may be shared at special SCDSB events to recognize nominated staff. Nominator email addresses are collected only in case we need clarification about your submission - your email address will not be shared or used for any other reason.
