Nominate AASD staff for “Great Outcomes Don’t Just Happen” award
Posted on 02/16/2016

What is the “Great Outcomes Don’t Just Happen” award?

The annual award is given to an AASD Staff member, teacher, coach, extracurricular coordinator, volunteer or paraprofessional who makes a positive difference in the life of a student.  In this time of decreasing budgets and salaries for schools, Petit & Dommershausen would like to acknowledge the efforts and sacrifices made on a daily basis by our school employees and volunteers.

The Nomination Process

The candidate can be nominated only by a student, parent, guardian, or foster parent of a student. Only one nomination per person.

Criteria for Selection

1. Has the nominee gone above and beyond to provide an exceptional educational experience? How?
2. What positive changes or outcomes have occurred because of the nominees efforts?

The Award

One award will be granted in each category; elementary and secondary. Elementary is defined as pre-k through 5th grade, secondary as 6th through 12th.  Each finalist will receive a plaque or certificate indicating that they were nominated and were one of the three finalists. Each winner will receive a cash prize of $250. No restrictions are given for the use of the monies. While this is planned as a yearly award, Petit & Dommershausen reserves the right to terminate the program at any time or not award the prize.
