The Branson R-IV Board of Education is among a select number of Missouri school boards that has earned the Missouri School Boards’ Association’s 2024 Governance Team Award.

This prestigious award is based on the outstanding commitment of the school board and superintendent to ongoing professional development in effective governance practices. The award also recognizes their commitment to regional and statewide leadership and to active participation in legislative advocacy for public schools and the students they serve.

The school board met the following criteria:

  • The district is fully accredited.

  • All seven board members fulfilled the Refresher Training requirement for the current year through MSBA.
  • At least two board members attained the Advanced level of certification from MSBA.

  • A representative attended at least one MSBA Legislative event during the past year.
  • A board member representative participated in MSBA’s Delegate Assembly.

The school boards and superintendents receiving the award were recognized during MSBA’s 2024 Summer Summit. The Missouri School Boards’ Association is a not-for-profit association that exists to help school boards ensure all students succeed.
