ISD School Board Honored with Governance Team Award
The Independence School District Board of Education received the 2018 Governance Team Award presented by the Missouri School Boards’ Association. Only 24 boards of education received this honor out of more than 500 public school districts in Missouri.
The award honors outstanding commitment to ongoing professional development in areas such as student achievement, school law and finance, board operations and contemporary issues in education. The award also recognizes commitment to regional and statewide leadership and to active participation in legislative advocacy for public schools and the students they serve. Award recipients were recognized during the MSBA’s Leadership Summit in June.
