“We are proud of all of our staff this year for their resilience, flexibility and focus on doing what is best for students,” said Vicki King, SBSD board president. “We are thrilled to be gathering virtually to celebrate our employees of the year for their outstanding commitment and contribution to students, learning and the future.”

A district-level committee made up of administrators, employee union representatives met to review all school and site nominations. Skyline School, Solana Highlands and Solana Pacific chose to nominate all certificated staff as employees of the year and Skyline additionally nominated all classified staff for the honor during this challenging year.
