    Good Apple Awards

  • Celebrating the contributions of employees

    The Good Apple Award program allows schools and administrative support centers to recognize employees, volunteers and partners who provide exemplary service to the district and its students. Twice each year, principals and selection committees take up the arduous task of reviewing nominations and selecting only three award recipients for their buildings. Award recipients are recognized within their building communities and also by the Wichita Public Schools Board of Education at two special ceremonies each year.

    Due to the pandemic, the program will look a little different for the 2020-21 school year. Honorees will be selected only from our employee ranks and the district will not hold an in-person ceremony. These changes do not limit our ability to celebrate and congratulate the award winners! 

    To nominate a Wichita Public Schools employee for the Good Apple Award, complete a nomination form and a signed letter of recommendation. Submit the nomination materials to the building principal where the nominee works. Principals will facilitate a process to select and recognize the award recipients at their buildings. 

    Nomination deadline dates may vary - consult your building principal soon! 

    Anyone - students, volunteers or employees - can nominate someone for the Good Apple Award.
