In 1998, the Georgia School Boards Association was one of the first school board associations in the nation to develop a program of standards for local boards of education. The GSBA Governance Team Recognition Program was developed by Georgia superintendents and board members based on the state board of education’s standards for effective governance to recognize distinguished leadership.
The GSBA Board recognition program is a three-year, three tiered program. For more information on the program, visit the GSBA website for awards and recognition or click here to view the criteria for all tiers of the program.
