Cheers to Peers
Welcome back to our Cheers to Peers column – a space to recognize some of the excellent work being done in our member districts. Today we are saying “cheers” to Issaquah School District’s Indoor Air Quality (IAQ) Group.
This group has worked for years to build a high-functioning team consisting of staff, administrators and unions with consistent roles and responsibilities.
In terms of IAQ, they have incorporated all best practices, including school-board-approved policies and procedures. And they can address IAQ concerns in-house. Even more impressive is the guidance poster they have developed which will be adopted by the Department of Health.
Our hats off to Issaquah for tackling such a big project with so much success!
An RTW Kudo Award goes to Mukilteo School District. They created three light duty positions that support the entire district!
- Touch Point Cleaning – allowing flexibility, duties can be as broad or as detailed as the worker’s restrictions require.
- Print Shop Helper – supporting the in-house publications department with a variety of stationary work.
- Science Kit Position – creating counting and other science-oriented packets to support K-8 science and math curriculum.
These positions allow 5 – 10 people to return to work in a light duty capacity and the district can meet injured workers where they are in their recovery.
This is good for the district and great motivation for the injured worker because it acknowledges their importance and value to the district.
