ISD 728 Honors with Best of the Best with Annual Awards

Each year, under the guidance of the Elk River Education Association and the ISD 728 Human Resources Department, the school district honors a handful of teachers and staff members who are nominated by their peers for excellence in their craft.

 

These nominations are then scored by a panel of district personnel, including teachers, administrators, directors and communications staff.

 

Six winners were named recipients of this year’s annual awards.
