TASA School Board Awards Program

  • TASA created the School Board Awards Program in 1971 to recognize school boards whose dedication and ethical service have made a positive impact on the schoolchildren of Texas. It is an excellent way for districts to recognize their hard-working, dedicated board members.

    Each year, regional selection committees submit up to two nominations for state competition, one from districts with fewer than 1,000 students and one from districts with more than 1,000 students. The criteria emphasize support for educational improvement projects and school transformation initiatives.

    School boards nominated to represent their regions are in the running to be named one of five Texas Honor Boards, one of which is chosen as Texas' Outstanding School Board. All regional nominees and honor boards are recognized at the TASA/TASB Convention, which takes place each fall.
