Georgia School Boards Association announced the creation of the GSBA Governance Team of the Year Award in 2018. This prestigious award honors the top board/superintendent team that best demonstrates its commitment to maximizing student achievement and enhancing trust and support for public education in their community. This honor is deeply rooted in the components of the Georgia Vision for Public Education research-based recommendations for Georgia’s public schools; however, a system does not have to have formally adopted the Vision for Public Education to apply.
GSBA is excited about what this award demonstrates for the governance teams that are recognized, as well as the statewide recognition it will bring to the hard work of public schools. New last year, there will be 3 winners – one for each category of Small, Medium and Large Districts.
Please note: The Governance Team of the Year award is different from the board recognition program (Quality, Distinguished & Exemplary Boards). The board recognition program still exists and are usually awarded during the June conference.
