CUSF announces its NEW 2023 Super Star Award for Unit 4 and District 116 support staff and paraprofessionals.  Kelly Hill, CUSF Executive Director notes, “Our schools would simply not run as effectively or efficiently without the many supporting talents and expertise of these essential staff members.  From multilingual teaching aides, student support advocates, office managers, food service assistants, hall monitors, student engagement advocates, and custodial workers, these individuals help build relationships with students and staff which are often the “secret sauce,” for successful schools.”
