Staff Recognition Program

  • Fargo Public Schools deeply values its more than 1,800 staff members. Each person is an integral member of our large team that ensures each student receives a high quality education in a safe learning environment. To honor our employees, the District annually awards the following:

    • Teacher of the Year Awardawarded to a certified staff member
    • Administrator of the Year Awardawarded to a principal, assistant principal, director or coordinator 
    • Support Staff of the Year Awardawarded to an educational support staff member, custodial/maintenance department staff member, or nutrition services staff member

    Each award is given in the spring of the year. The Teacher of the Year honoree is then forwarded to the North Dakota Department of Instruction as a candidate for the North Dakota Teacher of the Year. For a listing of past recipients, click here.

    Nominations for each award for 2019 were open from January 7 through 18. Nominations are currently closed.
