Nominate an Educator

Nominate an Educator for a Distinguished Educator Award

Has a District 200 teacher/educator inspired you and made a difference in your or your child’s life? If you know such a teacher/educator, please fill out the nomination form below and submit it by February 10, 2020!

Nominations may be made by any District 200 student, parent or guardian, alumna or alumnus, staff, or community member. You may nominate more than one educator; however, a separate nomination form must be used for each.  Any educator is eligible for nomination if he/she is currently employed by District 200 (including classroom aides, LLC staff, and specialists). Self-nominations will not be considered.

On April 28, 2020, at the Celebrate Our Stars evening, the Student Excellence Foundation will present awards to one educator at each school level, for the North & South portions of the District:

  • Preschool/Elementary School
  • Middle School
  • High School.

A committee of three former D200 principals will review the blind nominations and select six recipients to receive the 2020 Distinguished Educator Awards.  Recipients will be notified mid-March. All nominees and their principals will also be notified that they received a nomination.  Please indicate below if you would like your submission to remain anonymous.

Historically, the Student Excellence Foundation receives over one hundred nominations each year and looks forward to reading the 2020 nominations for all the great educators in our District!
