Posted on 09/22/2023

Four members for Florence School District 3’s Board of Trustees have earned recognition by the South Carolina School Boards Association (SCSBA) for achievement in the association’s 2022-2023 Boardmanship Institute.

SCSBA Boardmanship Institute, established in 1982, offers a year-round training curriculum to help board members develop skills and stay abreast of state and national education issues. Workshops focus on school law, advocacy and legislation, improving board operations, leadership for improving student achievement and other timely topics.

Board members can achieve up to six levels of recognition by earning points that are accrued annually from July through June for participation in statewide conferences and training provided onsite in their district.

Board members recognized and their levels of achievement are:

  • Jason Kirby - Level 2
  • Paula Morris - Level 3
  • Rutha Frieson - Level 4
  • Mattie Thomas - Level 4

Each year, about 80 percent of board members statewide attend at least one training session.

SCSBA is the statewide professional organization serving as a source of information, training and advocacy for the state’s 79 school district boards, county boards and state special schools.
