The Puyallup School District is accepting nominations for the Classified School Employee of the Year program.

Parents, students, community members, and school district staff may nominate a classified district employee for this annual honor by completing the 2012 Classified School Employee of the Year Program Nomination Sheet.

Completed nomination forms should be sent to Karen Hansen, executive director of communications, at the Education Service Center, 302 Second Street SE, Puyallup, 98372. Forms must be received no later than 4 p.m. on Friday, October 28, 2011.

The Classified School Employee of the Year awards program is designed to recognize the work of school and district classified staff members who have made a positive difference in their profession. All school and district employees who are categorized as "classified" are eligible for nomination. Nominees should be employees who consistently demonstrate outstanding work performance, professional leadership, and collaboration.

Up to three employees will be selected as Puyallup School District Classified Employees of the Year and will be recognized by the Puyallup School Board. The nomination packet for these staff members will be forwarded to the Puget Sound Educational Service District to be considered for the regional Classified School Employee of the Year selection. Each of the nine regional educational service districts (ESDs) will select one regional finalist to be considered for the Washington state award.
