PRJUSD Employees of the Year 2021-22

Employee of the Year Recognition
The Employee of the Year Recognition Program is an opportunity for the Board of Trustees and the Paso Robles Joint Unified School District to recognize outstanding service by our employees.

Each school site selects a certificated and classified employee of the year.  Classified employee of the year is also chosen by the district sites:  food services, and the district office. 

From these site winners, we will recognize a district Certificated Employee of the Year and Classified Employee of the Year.  In addition, we will also select a Manager / Administrator, Rookie of the Year from our list of finalists.  Finalists for those categories were selected by the Employee Recognition Committee based on submitted nominations collected district wide.
