Children become successful thanks to their own talents and initiative, but critical to getting them on the right track are the combined efforts of many adults, at home and in school.

Examples of staff members who are eligible include Principals, Parapros, Custodians, Bus Drivers, Secretaries, Media Specialists, Food Service Staff, Social Workers, Skilled Trades, Computer Technicians, or anyone who is not a classroom teacher but works for the Dearborn Public Schools.


Previous nominees may be nominated, however previous Impact Award winners may not win again.


Nomination forms with a complete list of qualifications can be found and completed online at Printed nomination forms may be requested at all school offices and the District’s Administration Office, 18700 Audette, Dearborn 48124.
