Excellence Counts Awards

Excellence Counts Logo (4)

District 215 has an abundance of committed individuals - teachers, support staff, parents, and community members - who work unselfishly to make our schools and district successful.

Excellence Counts is an award that the Board of Education designed to recognize those individuals who have impacted the lives of our students, both in and out of the classroom.

Our award, Excellence Counts, provides an avenue for district staff, parents, students, and community members to nominate and honor those people who have done their very best for District 215. At each monthly meeting, the Board of Education will publicly acknowledge and honor Excellence Counts nominees for their contribution and dedication.
