REGION 7 ESC ANNOUNCES 2013 REGIONAL SCHOOL BOARD OF THE YEAR
KILGORE--The Frankston ISD school board has been named the regional winner for the 2013 School Board of the Year (SBOTY) Award. Frankston ISD will represent Region 7 as its nominee for the Texas Association of School Administrators (TASA) Texas School Board of the Year competition, which will be announced in September.
Those serving on the 2012-2013 Regional SBOTY are as follows: Junior Mascorro, President, Ali Atwood, Vice President, Carl House, Secretary, Bob Whitehurst, Mark Bostick, Jerry Jones, and Tim Brumley.
The Frankston ISD board was nominated by their superintendent, Mr. Keith Murphy, for their collaboration, synergy, ethical standards, financial integrity, and their commitment to students and staff. The Frankston ISD board of trustees shows dedication as a policy-making body. According to their application, the Board dedicated themselves to shouldering the burden, answering the challenge, rallying the larger Frankston community around a shared vision in an effort to offer the very best education possible to students in Frankston, Texas.
In June, retiring trustee, Ali Atwood earned the “master trustee” award from the Texas Association of School Boards (TASB). Atwood was part of a group that presented two sessions at the Leadership Conference in Ft. Worth. Among other things, Atwood spoke about the great accomplishments of Frankston ISD; she will be also making this presentation in Austin this summer.
Created in 1971, the School Board Awards Program recognizes those school boards that demonstrate outstanding dedication and rendered ethical service to the children of Texas. Nominations are based on the following criteria: functions as a policy-making body, adherence to adopted board policies, support for educational performance in accordance with state-established standards, support for educational improvement projects, commitment to a code of ethics, provision of financial support for the school system, participation in workshops and other performance improvement programs, placement of the welfare of children served by the school system above personal or political motives, public relations efforts, including community awareness, and maintenance of harmonious and supportive relationships among board members.
Frankston ISD, along with 19 other regional winners, will be reviewed by the School Board Awards Committee in August where five Honor Boards will be announced. All regional and honor boards are recognized at the TASA/TASB Convention which takes place in Dallas, September 27-29, 2013.
