2015 Urban School Board Excellence Award winners - Cleveland Metropolitan School District, Fort Wayne Community Schools, and Lincoln Public Schools

Each year the National School Boards Association’s (NSBA) Council of Urban Boards of Education (CUBE) recognizes exemplary school boards for their excellence in school board governance, ability to build civic capacity, success in closing the achievement gap and working for equity in education, and demonstrated success of academic excellence. This year’s award recipients are Ohio’s Cleveland Metropolitan School District, Indiana’s Fort Wayne Community Schools, and Nebraska’s Lincoln Public Schools.

At CUBE’s Annual Conference October 1-3, in Phoenix, Arizona, the three winning districts had the opportunity to share their success stories and best practices, highlighting the crucial connection between effective school board governance and student achievement.

“NSBA is happy to honor Cleveland Metropolitan School District, Fort Wayne Community Schools, and Lincoln Public Schools for their accomplishments and ongoing work to improve student learning in their districts,” said Thomas J. Gentzel, Executive Director, National School Boards Association.
