SALT LAKE CITY — The Salt Lake City School District is taking nominations for 2015 District Teacher of the Year. All district teachers who have achieved career status are eligible for consideration.
Parents, students, staff, or faculty members may nominate teachers for this award.
The following criteria should be used to evaluate teachers: they inspire students of all backgrounds and abilities to learn; they are active participants in the school community and community at large; they merit respect and admiration of students, parents, staff, and colleagues; and they encourage students to reach their potential.
The nomination form is available at www.slcschools.org. Nominations must be received in the Development and External Relations Department by March 28. Submit the form to the attention of Jeanette Hartley at email@example.com or by fax at 801-578-8440.
The initial selection committee will review the nominees and choose top four candidates. The finalists will be invited to complete the official 2015 National Teacher of the Year application.
A different committee will select the 2015 Teacher of the Year from the four finalists. Individual candidates will be invited to a personal interview with the committee, and the committee may elect to observe the candidates at the school during the school day. Upon receipt and acceptance of the completed application and final interview, each candidate will receive an award of $500.
The Teacher of the Year will receive a $2,000 award in addition to the $500.
