CUBE Annual Award for Urban Education Excellence
Board governance and leadership guide urban school districts around the country every day. As difficult decisions are made at every level in a school system, the leadership team is at the forefront of tough decisions regarding what is best for its students. At the core of CUBE’s Annual Award for Urban School Board Excellence is the leadership team’s ability to govern and keep the focus on urban student achievement.
CUBE’s aim is to showcase excellence in school board governance every year by presenting the Annual Award for Urban School Board Excellence. Award winners share their ideas and promote effective techniques at CUBE conferences and through CUBE publications. These districts serve as a resource for other CUBE districts, sharing best practices to help all urban districts improve.
The 2013 CUBE Annual Award application process has now closed. Applications for the 2014 CUBE Annual Award will be available in Winter 2014.
