League City, Texas – On June 15, 2012 Clear Creek ISD Board of Trustee Ann Hammond earned the designation of Master Trustee upon completion of Leadership TASB, a program sponsored by the Texas Association of School Boards (TASB). “The year-long program was an incredible learning experience for me,” said Hammond, “Being able to visit school districts across Texas was so enlightening. Of particular interest to me was that no matter the size of the district, if there was a high level of parental involvement, student achievement was evident.”
School board members in the 2011–12 Leadership TASB class made presentations of their team’s findings following year-long research. Class participants selected topics related to nontraditional approaches to challenges in today’s educational enterprises. Their research focused on topics that included college readiness, student health, board leadership, funding inequities, 21st Century classroom adaptations, and parental involvement. TASB evaluators selected the presentation done by Hammond and her group as one of four group projects to be presented at the TASA/TASB Convention in late September 2012.
The 2012 Leadership TASB class, composed of 31 school board members, represents Texas school districts of all sizes and property wealth. Participants who completed all required elements of the study program earned Master Trustee status, the highest designation recognized by TASB.
TASB is a voluntary, nonprofit association established in 1949 to serve local Texas school districts. School board members are the largest group of publicly elected officials in the state. The districts they represent serve more than 4.9 million Texas public school students.
