Three area school districts’ school boards are being honored by the Associated School Boards of South Dakota for their dedication to enhancing their knowledge of school board work during the 2020-21 school year.
Members of the Madison Central, Howard, and Rutland School Boards recently earned Gold Level awards for their participation in the Associated School Boards of South Dakota’s board recognition program. The program is called ALL, which stands for Act, Learn, Lead, and honors the work of school boards who strived to enhance their knowledge base of board work.
By participating in ASBSD activities, training opportunities and demonstrating leadership at the local, state and national level, school boards accumulated points throughout the previous school year. To earn the Gold Level award, these three school boards accumulated five-hundred or more ALL points.
In the fifth year of the program, 77 public school boards, more than half of public boards in South Dakota, earned an ALL award – the most in the history of the program.
