The Morris School District earned the Carole E. Larsen Master Board Certification, and the Washington Township Board of Education earned the New Jersey School Boards Association’s Board Certification at the Morris County School Boards Association’s June 16 meeting at Parsippany Hills High School.

The Carole E. Larsen Master Board Certification is given in recognition of high-performing boards. The board must provide evidence to demonstrate an emphasis on student achievement in their board actions. To earn the Carole E. Larsen Master Board Certification, a certified board must also complete at least 10 additional hours of training for a total of 26 board credits within two years after earning its certification.

Board Certification recognizes the full board’s commitment to training and effective governance in areas such as group process, decision-making, planning, effective meetings and focus on student achievement.

The NJSBA offers its congratulations to each board.
