Employee Recognition Program



Gilroy Unified School District Employee Recognition Program is pleased to recognize the valuable contributions of District employees to its students, schools and community. 

Employees from each of the District’s three bargaining units (GTA, CSEA, GFP) and a management staff member will be recognized.

The vision and goal of the program, developed by Superintendent Flores and the Board of Trustees, is to recognize the valuable contributions to the District’s students, schools and community by staff members. Unlike traditional programs, GUSD’s program allows any staff member, regardless of position and bargaining unit, to nominate another staff member for their contributions and hard work.
