ALL’s first update of 2017-18

Boards are back to putting forth all their effort to enhance their knowledge base.


ASBSD’s Board Recognition Program – ALL: Act, Learn, Lead – thrived in its first year and after two months of activity in 2017-18, board are back to putting up points.


Read the roundup of ALL’s 2016-17 here.


School boards earn points throughout the fiscal year (July 1-June 30) by participating 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.

As we head toward the fall months, we’ve tallied up the “ALL Scoreboard” which shows the ten most active school boards thus far:

  1. Howard School Board – 930 points
  2. Lyman School Board – 860 points
  3. Todd County School Board – 770 points
  4. Newell School Board – 520 points

  7. Lead-Deadwood School Board – 450 points
  8. Hot Springs School Board – 400 points
  9. (Tie) Ipswich and White River School Boards – 380 points

Twenty-four school boards have already earned a Gold, Silver or Bronze award level, and including the previous two years of learning opportunities, 116 districts have accumulated ALL points, with 77 districts having scored points in July and August of this year.

“We had a great first year of the ALL program and our boards are off to another great start,” ASBSD Executive Director Wade Pogany said. “We’re ecstatic about the level of participation and commitment South Dakota’s school boards are showing.”


“There are many opportunities for boards to earn points and enhance their knowledge of board work coming up and additional chances to schedule trainings with Randy.”
