Since August ASBSD has presented 29 schools boards with their board recognition plaques.
Howard School Board – Gold Level
School boards earned 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.

Hot Springs School Board – Gold Level
“Their leadership to achieve excellence for South Dakota public education is commendable and we were very happy to be able to present them their award.”
Platte-Geddes School Board – Gold Level
Haakon School Board – Gold Level
A little more than a 1/3 of ALL award recipients are still set to receive their plaque this fall and as things are progressing so far in 2017-18, the number of boards receiving ALL awards for their work this school year could eclipse ALL’s first year mark (48).
