The more than 1,500 people employed by the Kern County Superintendent of Schools represent our agency’s most valuable asset. The KCSOS Employee Recognition Program was established in an effort to recognize and reward staff for their dedication and contributions to the success of the overall mission of the organization.
The program consists of various components including three annual awards and other ways to recognize and thank employees and peers all year long.
Every year, KCSOS solicits nominations for its annual You Make a Difference Awards, which recognize employees in three categories — Outstanding Service to Education, Innovation in Education and Distinguished Service. Final selections are made by a committee consisting of office employees who judge nominees on their “dedication and contributions to the success of the overall mission of the organization.”
Nominations for the 2017-18 awards are now open. Nominations will be accepted until June 30, 2018. All awards can be made by employees (peer or supervisors), as well as students and community partners. You may nominate by clicking on the buttons below, or by completing the forms HERE, and delivering them to Human Resources, attention Cherie Payne.
