• PfISD Employee of the Month

    Outstanding PfISD employees are recognized at the District level, both as a reward for exceptional performance and as a model to other employees. Based upon nominations from other PfISD staff, PfISD will name a Professional and a Support Employee of the Month (EOM) each month. Any PfISD employee can nominate another employee as EOM. Once the Employees of the Month are determined, they will be recognized by the Board of Trustees and on the PfISD website. We think this will be a great way to recognize employees who are observed going above and beyond in PfISD. For each month's EOM, nominations will be accepted through the 15th of the prior month.
