Reeds Spring School Board Earns Prestigious Recognition

The Reeds Spring school board received the Missouri School Boards’ Association’s 2019 Governance Team Award. Only 33 of the more than 500 school boards in the state earned this prestigious award. This is the sixth consecutive year for Reeds Spring to be recognized.

This award is based on an outstanding commitment to ongoing professional development in student achievement, school law and finance, board operations, and contemporary issues in education. It also recognizes the board’s commitment to regional and statewide leadership, and active participation in legislative advocacy for public schools and the students they serve.

To qualify, the school board had to meet the following criteria:

  • All seven school board members have completed the Essential certification from MSBA.
  • The district is fully accredited.
  • At least two board members in each awarded district have attained the Advanced level of certification from MSBA.
  • At least one board member in each awarded district has attained the Master’s level of certification.
  • At least a quorum of the board and the superintendent attended the 2018 MSBA Annual Conference and a regional meeting during the past year.
  • A representative attended the 2019 MSBA Legislative Forum.
  • Each awarded district had representative participation in MSBA’s Delegate Assembly.

MSBA recognized the 2019 Governance Team Award winners on June 8 during the Leadership Summit in St. Charles.
