Yankton School Board Earns Statewide Award

Yankton School Board Earns Statewide Award

Members of the Yankton School Board have earned an award for their dedication to enhancing their knowledge of school board work.

The Yankton School Board earned a gold level award for their participation in the Associated School Boards of South Dakota’s board recognition program.

The program is titled ALL. It stands for Act, Learn, Lead and honors the work of school boards who strived to enhance their knowledge base of board work.

By participating in ASBSD activities, training opportunities and demonstrating leadership at the local, state and national level, school boards accumulated points throughout the previous school year. To earn the Gold Level award, the YanktonSchool Board accumulated 500 or more ALL points.

The Yankton School Board received their ALL plaque recently. In the fifth year of the program, 77 public school boards, more than half of public boards in South Dakota, earned an ALL award – the most in the history of the program.

ASBSD is a private, non-profit association representing more than 850 South Dakota school board members, the 149 schools they govern and the students they serve.
