CABE Board of Education Leadership Awards

CABE believes that Boards of Education and Superintendents which exhibit the most effective leadership are characterized by their ability to work together as “teams.” The CABE Board Recognition Awards are designed to recognize Boards that work effectively in this manner. Boards that fulfill 22 of the following 34 Level One criteria, including a minimum of three in each area, will earn the Level One CABE Board Leadership Award.

In order to appropriately recognize those Boards which are truly exemplary, CABE has now established a second level of awards, the Board of Distinction Award. Only Boards which have achieved Level One distinction at least twice in the prior four years are eligible to receive the Board of Distinction Award. Boards must achieve at least two Level Two items in each Level Two category to receive this award.
