Members of the Burnsville-Eagan-Savage School District 191 Board of Education were recognized at the Minnesota School Boards Association (MSBA) Leadership Conference Jan. 14 for earning the District Award of Distinction.
Only six districts in the state qualified for the award this year. To qualify, a district must have a majority of board members who received at least 100 hours of board training.
“These boards walk the walk,” said MSBA Executive Director Kirk Schniedawind. “They know that learning is lifelong, and set the example for their students to show that a well-educated board means better results for student achievement.”
MSBA is a statewide nonprofit organization representing 332 Minnesota public school boards that provides technical assistance, advocates for public school students and offers training opportunities for board members.
