Circle of Greatness - Employee Recognition Program

  • Click here to nominate an Aledo ISD employee for Circle of Greatness!

    Want to recognize an Aledo ISD Employee for doing a GREAT job? We want to recognize all employees that exemplify Growing Greatness!


    You can nominate any employee serving in the district for the Circle of Greatness Award. We’re looking for employees who are bringing Aledo ISD Growing Greatness to life, positively impacting our community and helping us grow each and every Aledo ISD student.

    Each month, every nominee for the Circle of Greatness Award will receive a recognition award. There is no limit to nominations each month. We want to hear about every employee who exemplifies the district’s mindset of Growing Greatness. 

    During the regular Board meetings in December 2020, March 2021 and June 2021, Aledo ISD Board of Trustees will recognize a top nominee from each category of Professional, Paraprofessional and Auxiliary employee groups. Among these quarterly winners, one in each category will be named as elite recipients at our 2021-2022 Aledo ISD Convocation in August.

    There are many Aledo ISD team members who are doing great work every single day, to nominate them for the Aledo ISD Circle of Greatness Award, click: COG Nomination Form.

    A successful nomination will tell the story of that employee by giving specific examples of their great work and dedicated service to the idea of Growing Greatness.
