Board Recognition Program for FY19
The GSBA Board Recognition Program is a 3 tier, 3-year process to achieve the highest level. The 3 recognition program levels are Quality, Distinguished and Exemplary. GSBA developed this program to reflect the state standards, which offers school boards additional ways to increase their effectiveness. The State Board of Education developed the state standards for governance that form the foundation for GSBA’s awards and recognition program. In FY18, the program was revised to add two additional criteria.
The program operates on a July 1-June 30 fiscal year. Participating districts must apply online by April 15 and all board member training must be completed by 5:00 p.m. on June 6, 2019 in order to receive recognition. GSBA will recognize the boards during the Summer Conference in Savannah.
This improved Board Recognition Program requires a higher level of commitment from school boards and individual members. The ultimate goal is to provide a platform based on governance standards which challenges boards, but creates a culture of success for students and communities.
