High Five

What is High Five?

The High Five program is our district’s employee recognition program. Every month we select five employees and acknowledge them at our governing board meetings. We spotlight those who embrace our core values and mission as a district. You can read more about the program in our High Five flyer. Each month we will present our Fantastic, Incredible, Valuable, Employees (FIVE) who demonstrate the following five criteria:

  1. Professionalism
  2. Displays a positive attitude
  3. Sees it, owns it, solves it, does it
  4. Demonstrates district pride
  5. Goes above and beyond

How does it work?

The process is simple. Employees may nominate fellow colleagues that demonstrate the five qualities of a High Five employee. Every month the High Five committee will review all nominations and select the top five.
