Each spring the Tri-Valley SELPA and the SELPA’s Community Advisory Committee host the Make a Difference (MAD) Awards. ¬†Parents have an opportunity to nominate teachers, specialists, paraprofessionals and educational leaders who have made a difference in their child’s life.


In 2018 the SELPA honored 41 staff members. The audience was entertained by the “Shooting Stars”, an inclusinve cheerleading group from Livermore Valley Joint Unified School District and the Dream Achievers Band.


Nomination forms will be posted on this site around February or March of each year for that year’s MAD Awards. ¬†Any nominated staff member who was not awarded the previous year will be honored at the ceremony.
