The superintendent or designee shall establish procedures by which the board members, employees, or members of the community may suggest persons or organizations for board recognition. Honorees may be members of the district or community, who have contributed in a significant manner to education and/or the district.

In view of the many types of contributions and services offered by the community, recognition may, depending on the circumstances and at the discretion of the board, include a letter or board resolution, verbal recognition, a public ceremony, or an appropriate gift.

The board encourages similar forms of recognition for achievement or services as part of school-level commendation program.
