Teachers and staff members are working extra hard during Distance Learning. But do you know of an AUSD employee who deserves some special recognition? Please take a few moments to applaud exceptional AUSD employees through our AUSD Badges program. Nominate any AUSD staff member for the “Beyond the Call of Duty” or the “Spotlight” badge to make them eligible to be selected as one of our two monthly Game Changers. Each month, we select two Game Changers. Each one receives a $100 award from Schools First Federal Credit Union and recognition by the AUSD Board of Education. To nominate an employee, visit this site: Click on the headline to access the "AUSD Badges" website. Click on "Recognition" and then select the badge to submit a nomination. Nominations can be submitted by students, parents, or colleagues.
