APS Seeking Nominations for Counselor of the Year

Nominations are due April 4.

You are invited to nominate outstanding individuals who exemplify the highest standards in providing services to students, families, and schools. Anyone can nominate a school counselor, but only a school counselor may nominate an advocate.

  • Counselor of the Year has 4 categories: elementary, middle, high, newcomer. One individual from each category will be awarded. If a nominee works at more than one level, please choose the level at which she/he works the most.
  • Counselor of the Year nominees for elementary, middle, and high must be currently employed as a school counselor in APS and have worked as a school counselor for 3 years or more (not necessarily in APS).
  • Newcomer of the Year nominees must have worked as a school counselor for less than 3 years (not necessarily in APS).
  • Advocate of the Year nominees are often school administrators, but can be anyone employed by APS who meets the advocate selection criteria below.
  • All nominees and awardees will be honored on May 5, 2015 at the end of year professional development day.

The selection committee for Counselor of the Year and Newcomer of the Year is comprised of APS employees from district-level departments who regularly work with school counselors (i.e. nursing, family engagement, district leadership, communications). Advocate of the Year will be selected by a committee of past Counselor of the Year awardees. A separate nomination form must be completed for each nominee.
