Celebrating Our Outstanding Staff


The Ducky Awards is Superintendent Susan Enfield's fun way of recognizing staff for going above and beyond to advance Our Promise of knowing every student by name, strength and need. To nominate a colleague, send an email to Superintendent Enfield with the name of the individual and a brief paragraph on how they deliver on our promise.

Doug Judge

Director of Social-Emotional Learning Doug Judge goes above and beyond. He ensures schools feel supported, have access to SEL resources and professional development, and receive SEL/behavior coaching and supports. He does all of this in a way that is most effective and tailored to each schools' strengths and needs. His passion for SEL and the well-being of both adults and students is evident.

Sissy Stanton

Sissy Stanton deserves a Ducky Award! Last summer she moved 26 classrooms herself! Every advisor needed to move rooms as they prepared for adding two 6th-grade advisories.

High Fives

Highline High Fives are a way for our staff to celebrate each other. Do you have a colleague who goes above and beyond? Or do you know a team or department who deserves some extra recognition? Show them some appreciation by nominating them for a Highline High Five. We'll post your nominations right here on our staff kudos page.
