Texas school superintendents who are TASA members and meet other criteria may nominate their boards of trustees for the TASA School Board Awards. Committees of TASA members organized by Texas’ regional education service centers review the nominations and select up to two school boards for consideration for the state-level awards: one with fewer than 1,000 students (small district category) and one with 1,000 or more students (large district category).


TASA’s School Board Awards Committee will meet virtually in late July to select up to five of the nominated boards to be recognized as Honor Boards. Those finalists will be interviewed in San Antonio at txEDCON, the TASA|TASB Convention on September 23, and the 2022 Outstanding School Board will be announced later that day.


The TASA School Board Awards Program was established in 1971 to recognize the dedication and service of school boards that make a positive impact on the schoolchildren of Texas. The program is sponsored by Google for Education and Raise Your Hand Texas for the 2022-23 school year.
