ASBA Awards and Recognition

Each year, ASBA honors individual school board members, as well as entire governing boards for efforts toward improvement, as incentive for voluntary board member in-service training, to promote the idea of better boardsmanship, and for service to public school in the form of advocacy. Awards are also presented to districts, schools and teachers for excellence in student achievement.
