Avon Board of School Trustees Earns Exemplary Status

Avon, Ind. – The Avon Board of School Trustees has been recognized by the Indiana School Boards Association (ISBA) with an Exemplary Governance Award (EGA) for calendar year 2023. They earned the award because of their outstanding commitment to professional learning and student success.

The Exemplary Governance Awards (EGA) are conferred annually to school boards across four levels of distinction: Commendable, Advanced, Distinguished, and Exemplary. Only Avon and one other Indiana school board earned Exemplary status.

“Our staff and students are fortunate to have such a dedicated school board,” said Avon Schools Superintendent Dr. Scott Wyndham. “As this award illustrates, the members of our Board of School Trustees are deeply committed to our mission of making Avon Schools a place where all belong, learn, and grow.”

“It is an honor to serve the 11,000 students and 1,600 employees of our growing school corporation,” said President Kim Woodward, “not to mention parents, caregivers, and our supportive community. Collectively, we feel a deep sense of pride in our schools.”

Board awards are based on points earned by each member for attending ISBA seminars, workshops, conferences, and other learning events, as well as the board’s completion of certain additional criteria, such as a retreat with an outside facilitator and goal setting to elevate student achievement outcomes.

“On behalf of ISBA, I would like to commend this most exceptional group of school boards and school board members,” said ISBA Executive Director Terry Spradlin. “School boards perform a vital public service for their communities, and board members who actively participate in professional learning are better equipped to perform their duties effectively and meet the needs of their students.”

Honorees will be formally recognized during ISBA’s Spring Regional Meetings in April.

ISBA provides a full range of professional learning opportunities at dozens of events throughout the year to inform and educate school board members about best practices, legislative issues, policy development, school law, and more.
