    Employee Recognition Program

    The Person County School district is proud to have dedicated staff members and we want to recognize the outstanding service of these individuals. The STAR program was created to recognize employees for being selfless, working as and among a team, taking action, and achieving results.  This program embodies the same principles that PCS searches for in all employees.  During the year, PCS will recognize 4 employees from 2 sites at each board meeting.  Schools will be assigned the months in which employees from that site are being nominated.  The information below will help to provide a better visual for what our new STAR program is all about. For more information or questions e-mail the Rewards & Recognition committee at humanresources@person.k12.nc.us.
