V. Design the Award and the Process for Award Presentation

Awards can be granted at a school or district reception, celebration, or special award assembly. They can also be awarded as part of the school graduation. Awards have included medallions, ribbons, cords, and stoles for having met the basic criteria for the Seal. In addition, a Seal is affixed to the transcripts or diplomas of graduating seniors along with a description of the criteria met. Some districts have added levels of awards. For example, Glendale Unified School District awards trophies to students who demonstrate mastery in three or more languages as well as special awards for the students who have scored the highest in each language on district assessments.
