Nominations are made by any District 200 student, parent or guardian, alumna or alumnus, staff, or community member. 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.

Selections of the 2022 Distinguished Educators are underway right now!

In May — at the Celebrate Our Stars event — the Student Excellence Foundation will present awards to one educator at each school level, for the North & South portions of the District:

  • Early Childhood/Elementary School
  • Middle School
  • High School/Transition

A committee of three former D200 principals is reviewing the blind nominations and will select six recipients to receive the 2022 Distinguished Educator Awards.  Recipients will be notified in late March. All nominees and their principals will also be notified that they received a nomination.

Check out our previous awardees.
