Solano County Office of Education

Solano County Office of Education

The CSEY program is designed to highlight the contributions of classified school employees who support the education of our public school students in pre-kindergarten through grade twelve. The overall purpose is to pay tribute to the tireless efforts of outstanding classified school employees. They are vital members who play key roles in creating a school environment that promotes student achievement, safety, and health. It is our goal to recognize and honor an exemplary classified school employee from each school district throughout Solano County.
 
The Solano County CSEY Program is open to current school employees in Solano County’s public pre-kindergarten through grade twelve schools, including school districts and the Solano County Office of Education (SCOE). School districts may each select one classified school employee. A CSEY nominee is not in a management or supervisory position and has a minimum of five years of service in the nomination category with no minimum full-time equivalent.

ELIGIBILITY CRITERIA

ELIGIBILITY CRITERIA

SCOE provides the school districts with the guidelines for submitting nominations along with the evaluation and selection criteria that will be used to select awardees at the county level.

To be eligible for the Classified School Employee of the Year Program, applicants must:

SELECTION PROCESS

SELECTION PROCESS

The selection process for the Solano County CSEY begins with candidates whose names are submitted by school districts. SCOE will convene a Blue Ribbon Committee (BRC) who will be responsible to evaluate all nominations within the context of the selection criteria, which is organized around the following six areas:
 
  • Work performance.
  • School and community involvement.
  • Leadership and commitment.
  • Local support (from co-workers, school/district administrators, community members, etc., who speak to the nominee's extraordinary work).
