Almost 400 members of our school-support teams were recognized Aug. 1 for demonstrating outstanding customer service to our schools and other teams during the 10th-annual Kudos for Customer Service celebration. These team members received at least five shout-outs by name in DPS’ annual customer service survey.

In addition to recognizing our team members, the results of the annual School Support Customer Service Survey are used to make changes and improvements in work practices to better serve the entire DPS community, as well as to set department and individual performance goals for the coming year.
