Every year our 56 schools in BVSD choose each choose an impactful person in their school community to honor with an Impact Award.
A school community does not only include those who work in the building! Schools may nominate anyone creating a positive impact on the work and people inside their building, including classroom teachers, specialists, administrators, classified employees, or volunteers.
What do we mean by impactful?
- Inspiring and encouraging learning within your school community
- Supporting students within your school community
- Working collaboratively with others in your school community
Impactful individuals show an ongoing commitment to professional and personal growth and have powerful, often life-changing, effects on students and/or the rest of the education community through unfaltering and purposeful effort.
School Celebrations – March 2023
We encourage each school to plan a school-based celebration for their honoree. Whether it’s an assembly, a staff meeting, or a unique school surprise, we’ll provide an Impact Awards celebration kit to help make it fun. (Kits delivered in late February 2023.)
We are here to help with resources and ideas, should you need any, and encourage you to collaborate with your school PTO/PTA organization if you have one.
Community celebration – May 2023
We are planning to honor all 2022-23 Impact Award honorees at a community-wide celebration in May 2023.
