Board Recognitions

Guidelines for Board Recognitions

A goal of Jeffco’s Board is to recognize the accomplishments of Jeffco staff, students and community members who advance the district’s vision, mission and values in Jeffco’s strategic plan.

The Board’s recognition program selects individuals who go above and beyond to achieve an award or accomplishment. Each month at a regular board meeting during the school year, these individuals are celebrated by the Board.
