Many Anoka-Hennepin staff members go above and beyond normal job expectations to ensure that students receive a high quality education in a safe and nurturing environment.
The Above and Beyond Awards involve students, staff, parents and community members in recognizing and rewarding Anoka-Hennepin employees - teachers, secretaries, cooks, paras, custodians and others - who consistently go that extra mile so students can be successful.
This program is a joint effort of the district and the Anoka-Hennepin Educational Foundation (AHEF). The first Above and Beyond Awards was presented in late April 2012.
How to nominate
A student, parent, staff or community member can nominate. Nominations for the 2013-14 nomination award were due Jan. 10.
All part- and full-time employees of district are eligible.
Nominees are notified and asked to complete applications and return applications. Employees must complete the application process to be considered for an award.
A panel of staff and community members will review nomination and application forms and select winners.
Each winner will receive an award from AHEF and will be recognized at a ceremony (typically held in April).
