VSBA Board of Distinction
Each year, the VSBA identifies school boards that will be designated as a VSBA Board of Distinction. Boards must apply for the designation and must meet specific requirements in four key areas: planning, policy, promotion, and board development. If eligible, the board will receive a plaque to hang on the wall of their boardroom designating the board as a VSBA Board of Distinction. The announcement of the recipients and presentation of award plaques will be made during the VSBA Annual Convention in November.
Designation as a VSBA Board of Distinction may be accomplished by the chairman, with the approval of the board, completing and returning the checklist and supporting materials by July 22, 2016. Once a school board has achieved this designation, it may reapply after two years for continued VSBA Board of Distinction status.
