Twenty-two Missouri school boards were presented MSBA’s Governance Team Award this year. This prestigious award is based on those school boards’ outstanding commitment to ongoing professional development in areas such as student achievement, school law, finance, board operations, and contemporary issues in education.

Other school boards honored were Bayless, Bolivar R-I, Branson R-V, Cameron R-I, Cape Girardeau 63, Columbia 93, Grain Valley R-V, Hannibal 60, Harrisonville R-IX, Hazelwood, Independence, Jefferson City, Knob Noster R-VIII, Liberty 53, Maries County R-II, Nixa Public Schools, Park Hill, Reeds Spring R-IV, Rolla 31, Webster Groves and Wright City R-II.
