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. This is an excellent opportunity to reward your hard-working, dedicated board members with the recognition they deserve.

The awards program allows each regional selection committee to 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 evidence of support for educational performance improvement. If selected to represent your region, your school board will be in the running to be named a 2016 Texas Honor Board, one of which is chosen as Texas' Outstanding School Board. All regional and honor boards are recognized at the TASA/TASB Convention which takes place in Houston, September 2016.


Recent (2011-2015) Outstanding and Honor Boards are ineligible for this year's program. Other than those boards, any Texas superintendent of schools who is a member of TASA and who has served in his/her current position at least since July 1, 2014 (other than the TASA president at the time the awards will be made), may nominate his/her board of trustees. School boards nominated for the awards program must have served during the school year immediately preceding the awards program. For 2016, only those school boards serving during the 2015-2016 school year are eligible to be nominated.
