Culture and Recognition

  • District 47 is committed to cultivating a supportive, positive and productive work environment that attracts, develops, and retains high quality staff. The district has three different recognition-based programs to celebrate and honor all staff members across the district. The chart below outlines the differences between three of the district's staff recognition programs: Elevate Program, Staff Shoutout, and Faces of D47. District 47 also expresses its appreciation to retirees and staff members who have served the district for a number of years through the Years of Service Awards and the Retirement Recognition Event. More information about each can be found on the tabs on the left.
