Nearly 50 school boards have earned ALL award levels during the 2017-18 school year.
Those award earners will receive a plaque for earning points as part of ASBSD’s Board Recognition Program – ALL: Act, Learn, Lead, which runs throughout the fiscal year (July 1-June 30) and boards earn points in ASBSD activities, training opportunities and demonstrating leadership at the local, state and national level and are credited for GAVEL Training (face-to-face or School Board U) for a total of three years (2015-16, 2016-17 and 2017-18).
Boards can earn Gold, Silver and Bronze awards for their point totals.

“School boards are once again committing their time and effort to enhancing their knowledge of board work,” ASBSD Executive Director Wade Pogany said. “These efforts will no doubt benefit their students, staff and community”
“School boards’ leadership to achieve excellence for South Dakota public education is so admirable and we’re very happy to be able to honor this work through the ALL program.”
Through the first three months of 2018, 14 school boards have earned a Gold award, 18 have reached the Silver level and 17 boards at Bronze – with 16 additional school boards within 50 points of the 250 point threshold needed to reach the Bronze level.
