The Dripping Springs ISD Board of Trustees will be honored this Friday, Oct. 6, as a Regional Honor Board by TASA (Texas Association of School Administrators). The DSISD Board, representing Region 13, is one of 16 regional Honor Boards. From that group, five were chosen as Honor Board finalists at the state level and one will be announced as the Outstanding School Board of the Year. Board Vice President Barbara Stroud will accept the award at the first general session of the 2017 TASA/TASB Convention.
Texas school superintendents who belong to TASA and meet other criteria may nominate their boards of trustees for the TASA School Board Awards. Committees of TASA members organized by Texas’ regional education service centers review the nominations and select up to two school boards for consideration for the state-level awards: one with fewer than 1,000 students and one with 1,000 or more students.
The TASA School Board Awards Program was established in 1971 to recognize the dedication and service of school boards that make a positive impact on the schoolchildren of Texas. The organization’s mission is to promote, provide and develop leaders who create and sustain student-centered schools and develop future-ready students.
