NCSBA Academy of School Boardsmanship
NCSBA strives to offer board members up-to-date and relevant educational training opportunities. Since its inception in 1985, the Academy for School Boardsmanship has provided an avenue for board members to develop skills and knowledge to carry out the task of leading the state's school districts.
Each academy year runs from July 1 through June 30. Board members must earn 30 hours of training annually as approved by the local board and reviewed by NCSBA. Once this minimum requirement has been met, annual recognition will be given.
Requirements for Yearly Awards
Recognition is awarded to individuals who have participated in a minimum of 30 hours of training during the current academy year. If a board member chooses not to participate in activities or has less than the required hours of training for the current academy year, that member's previous achievement level is not penalized. However, the member will not receive recognition at the annual awards banquet or be given a certificate/pin since the member did not meet the minimum requirement of training for the current academy year.
Types of Awards
All members qualifying for recognition of their level will receive a certificate indicating their achievement level. Achievement certificates will be mailed to each board member's superintendent.
