Applause! School Trustee Allan Tam Recognize the achievements of the students & Staffs

Applause! is the monthly recognition of significant achievements and contributions by staff, students and community partners at a York Region District School Board Public Board Meeting.

Recognition of achievements is based on alignment with the organizational goals outlined by the Trustees’ Multi-Year Plan in combination with the criteria set out in Staff Awards and Student Awards policies.


As a member of the board of trustees, I am responsible for:
  • reviewing the Awards policy in accordance with the approved policy review cycle;
  • understanding and communicating with members of the community about the Awards policy, where applicable;
  • receive the annual York Region District School Board Secondary Graduation Awards Report for information; and
  • approving trustee membership on applicable award selection committees
