Nominations are reviewed and selected by a committee. Recipients of the Linda Brown Fellow (certificated staff) and Star (classified staff) awards each receive a $1,000 personal cash award. Additionally, the Linda Brown Fellow recipients each receive a $2,000 grant to be used for academic purposes. The award presentation is made at the TTUSD back to school "convocation" staff event in August. All nominees, regardless of being selected or not, receive a copy of their nominations. Thank you for taking the time to acknowledge the exceptional educators in our school district.
