Three Clover School District board members earned recognition by the South Carolina School Boards Association for achievement in the association’s 2011-2012 Boardmanship Institute.
SCSBA Boardmanship Institute, established in 1982, offers a year-round training curriculum to help board members develop skills and stay abreast of state and national educational issues. Workshops focus on school law, advocacy and legislation, improving board operations, leadership for improving student achievement, and other timely topics.
Board members can achieve up to six levels of recognition by earning points that are accrued annually from July through June for participation in statewide conferences and training provided onsite in their district.
Statewide, SCSBA recognized 125 school board members for reaching one of six levels for the 2011-2012 year with certificates of achievement and a lapel pin designated their level of accomplishment in the institute.
Each year, about 80 percent of board members statewide attend at least one training session.
SCSBA is the statewide professional organization serving as a source of information, training and voice for the state’s 81school district boards.
