GCSD Employee Recognition Award
The Employee Recognition Award is a wonderful tradition in our district. In the late 1970's, the Board of Education authorized the establishment of a committee to review the names of Guilderland employees who have made outstanding contributions to the Guilderland Central School District. Over these many years, more than 460 employees have been recipients of this award.
If you are a current GCSD staff member, you may nominate an employee for recognition whose contributions have been:
• Through loyal service over a period of time, or
• Through special acts that exceed normal expectations, or
• Have had a significant immediate or long-range impact on students and /or employees.
The person you nominate is not restricted to someone from your own work group. For example, teachers may nominate a custodial employee or transportation employees may nominate a secretary, etc. However, many times nominations are submitted for individuals who have already received such recognition.

If you wish to nominate an employee who you feel deserves this special recognition and with whom you have a professional relationship, please complete an Employee Recognition Award nomination form (PDF) and return it to the Office of Human Resources. Please note: Only one (1) nomination by one (1) nominator per form, please. Forms which contain more than one nomination or a list of nominators will not be considered by the committee. E-Mails and late nominations will not be considered.
