Canyon ISD named 2019 Outstanding School Board for Region 16
Region 16 is proud to announce the Canyon ISD Board of Trustees has been named the 2019 Outstanding School Board of the Year for our region.

Education Service Centers across the state nominate school boards in their region for this honor.  

The award is presented by the Texas Association of School Administrators (TASA).

School boards nominated to represent their regions are in the running to be named one of five Texas Honor Boards, one of which is chosen as Texas' Outstanding School Board. All regional nominees and honor boards are recognized at the TASA/TASB Convention, which takes place each fall.

The following criteria was considered when selecting the school board to represent the region:
• Function as a policy-making body
• Adherence to adopted board policies
• Support for educational performance
• Support for education improvement projects and school transformation
• Commitment to a code of ethics
• Provision of financial support for the school system
• Participation in workshops and improvement programs
• Placement of the welfare of children above personal or political motives
• Public relation efforts
• Maintenance of harmonious and supportive relationship among board members

The board and superintendent of Canyon ISD truly meet and exceed all of these criteria and we at Region 16 are proud to recognize the board of trustees and celebrate their accomplishments and drive to “educate for excellence”.

TASA created the School Board Awards Program in 1971 to recognize those school boards that have demonstrated outstanding dedication and rendered ethical service to the children of Texas. The criteria emphasize evidence of support for educational performance improvement.
