Two School Board Members Recognized for Participation in State-Level Training
Two Greenville County Schools Board members earned recognition from the South Carolina School Boards Association (SCSBA) for achievement in the association’s 2013-14 Boardmanship Institute.
- Mrs. Joy Grayson, representing Area 17, reached Level Three by earning 100 points within two consecutive years or less. Level Three recipients receive a certificate and gold pin.
- Representing Area 25, Mr. Kenneth Baxter reached Level Two by earning 40 points within one year. Level Two recipients receive a certificate and silver pin.
SCSBA Boardmanship Institute 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.
SCSBA is the statewide professional organization serving as a source of information, training and voice for the state’s 81 school district boards, county boards and state special schools.
