2024 School Board Recognition Month


Observed March 2024 in Missouri

Missourians benefit every day from the dedicated energies and countless hours devoted by a group of more than 3,600 men and women from communities across the state. These public servants are elected by local constituents and do not receive compensation for their tireless efforts. They are the local school board members of Missouri.

During the month of March, communities across the state will honor the dedicated service of their local boards of education during School Board Recognition Month. The goal is to build awareness and understanding of the important function an elected board of education plays in communities and schools. All Missouri citizens are asked to recognize the important contributions of these men and women and focus attention on the vital role these public officials play in the education of Missouri’s children.

MSBA will mail certificates for each board member to member districts by March 1, 2024.

School Board Recognition Month is sponsored by the Missouri School Boards’ Association.
