School Board Member Achieves Master Certification
Mr. Floyd Hawkins, a member of the Ft. Osage R-I Board of Education, has achieved Master Certification in the Missouri School Boards’ Association certified board member program.
The program established by MSBA recognizes school board members who choose to complete additional professional development requirements beyond the 16 hours required by the Outstanding Schools Act of 1993. To achieve Master Certification, board members must earn at least 24 additional training credits, read two books related to school board service, attend at least two MSBA regional or statewide events and write a brief essay relating their study to their board service. Those members achieving Master Board Member Certification will be recognized for engaging in ongoing professional development to improve the knowledge and skills they need to function as effective educational leaders in their communities during the MSBA Leadership Summit in June.
The Missouri School Boards’ Association is a private, not-for-profit organization that exists to help public schools succeed.
