The number of applications for the Boards of Distinction program has been increasing in recent years. To facilitate additional applications, the deadline has been extended to midnight on September 15.
WSSDA’s Boards of Distinction program is about helping school boards reflect on the past school year, analyze their successes and possible growth areas, and gain useful knowledge to govern more successfully. The program is also a good tool for helping school boards align their efforts with the Washington School Board Standards.
Winning awards isn’t the goal of our efforts, our purpose is to help highlight our district and our students, showing the community ‘we’re working hard for you.’Dr. Jennifer McDonald, board member from 2021’s Board of the Year for medium-sized districts (Steilacoom SD)
