When we think about what makes a great school district, it comes back to the people who work with our students every day. For instance, it is well-researched that good teachers are the single most determining factor in student success. At YKSD, every position impacts a student’s success. Maintenance and custodial workers who take great pride in keeping the grounds neat, bathrooms clean, and hallways clean send a message that the school cares about the students.  This gives students a greater sense of worth, and inspires them to do their best because caring people care about them.

AWARD:  The award is given annually to one classified employee and one certified employee.  The 2023 award will be selected by the regional school board at its March meeting and presented by the local school and community at their end of the year celebration in May.
