“It is my great pleasure as governor to congratulate your board for receiving the Master Boards Award for 2016,” said Utah Gov. Gary Herbert. This prestigious award recognizes excellence in leading public schools in your neighborhoods and strengthening communities across the state through your efforts. As leaders in Utah, it is critical that we work together to ensure high achievement for every student.”

Congratulations to the Nebo School Board of Education: President Kristen Betts, Vice President Shannon Acor, Rick Ainge, Randy Boothe, Christine Riley, Dean Rowley and KL Tischner as well as Superintendent Rick Nielsen and Business Administrator Tracy Olsen.

Research shows that highly effective boards boost student achievement. Boards of education should be the “up front” leaders of public education. They are charged with the responsibility of creating the conditions within their school districts that will enable students to meet more rigorous knowledge and performance standards. This means boards taking responsibility for results even as they hold others in the school district accountable. This means that boards articulate the educational mission of the district and garner the public support and resources needed to achieve that mission.

r

“The Master Boards Award is another great indicator of what a committed, student-centered board of education we have in Nebo School District,” said Nebo School District Superintendent Rick Nielsen. “Our Nebo School Board of Education is committed to increase student learning. The board is knowledgeable of practices required to provide vision and policy direction to ensure the success of students and employees of Nebo School District.”

r

For this purpose, the Five Star Master of Boardmanship Award has been designed to help and encourage boards to become highly effective boards of education. There are five areas of achievement to become a five-star board.
