The Mansfield ISD school board has been selected as the 2024 Region 11 (north central Texas) winner of the School Board Awards program, sponsored by the Texas Association of School Administrators (TASA).

“Our board members bring different strengths and insight as they work together to continually improve the district and provide the best for our students,” said MISD superintendent Kimberley Cantu. “The board adopted a dashboard to hold themselves and me accountable in alignment with our strategic plan, Vision 2030, as we constantly strive to improve. Our board continually focuses on our strategic plan with communication, collaboration, critical thinking and creativity.”

To participate in this awards program, school superintendents must nominate their school board and submit the application to their regional education service center. The selection panel, which is composed of area school district superintendents, evaluates the applications received and rates how well each applicant addressed 10 distinct areas of focus.

Mansfield ISD’s school board will now join 19 other boards from across Texas that will be considered for the state award. The TASA selection committee will review all 20 regional entries and announce the finalists on or before Aug. 7. These finalists, designated as “Honor Boards,” will then be interviewed by the state selection committee, and the state winner will be named the “Texas Outstanding School Board” for 2024.

Region 11 is one of 20 education service center regions in the state. It covers 10 counties in north central Texas that include 76 traditional public school districts and more than 90 charter school campuses.
