New Teacher Orientation

As we plan for 2018-2019, we’re excited to welcome our new teachers! Our New Teacher Orientation is an excellent opportunity for new teachers to become acquainted with School Board representatives, administrators, community leaders, and other teachers as they hear about our vision and learn procedures that will support their success. We are looking forward to this important time with our new teachers.

New teacher orientation is scheduled for August 6-10, 2018 from 8:00am-3:30pm.


Employee Hall of Fame/Employee of the Year

Elkhart Community Schools recognizes the success of our students depends on hundreds of supportive staff members, from paraprofessionals to technical support. It is in this recognition that we ask our employees to nominate coworkers who have gone above and beyond to help each other and students, toward our goal of providing the highest level of education. This year, we are asking staff to nominate support employees of the year based on three classifications: elementary, secondary, and district-wide. Submissions are due to Human Resources by March 1, 2018.
