Nominations now open for 2019 Trustee Innovation Awards

BROCKVILLE — Nominations are open for the 2019 Upper Canada District School Board Trustee Innovation Awards

The awards recognize deserving UCDSB employees for work practices that make the school board and its schools more modern and innovative. The awards are intended to inspire others to find new ways to better serve our school communities and move our students forward. The first awards were presented in September 2013.

To qualify for an award, an employee must demonstrate creativity and innovation in devising a technique, tool or other resource that has increased student or peer achievement.

Nominations will be accepted from UCDSB employees, students and members of UCDSB parent councils.

Awards will be presented in six categories: Support Staff; Elementary Teacher; Secondary Teacher; Facilities/School and System; Administration and Managers, and Team/Group.

Past winners have included: a custodian known for his innovative solutions to addressing problems at his school from broken eyeglasses to the need to conserve water; a teacher who created a unique learning environment at her school that employs modern technology and project-based learning; and a science teacher who turned his classroom into a physics and chemistry playground.

Nominations are open until April 30.
