Brevard County School Board is one of only 12 school boards in Florida to currently hold this prestigious award.

The Certified Board distinction is awarded to Florida school boards where a majority of individual school board members have earned Certified Board Member recognition.

Certified Board Member recognition requires completion of 96 hours of training in 12 curricular areas. Once this has been achieved, to maintain active status, each board member must complete an additional 18 hours of training each year.

The Certified Board award signifies a commitment by the school board to actively pursue formal training for its members.

This training maintains student achievement as the core of board governance and instills knowledge and awareness of key educational issues, enabling the school board to provide expert leadership for students and the community.

Board members Karen Henderson, Amy Kneessy and Andy Ziegler have qualified the Brevard County School Board to earn the Certified Board Distinction by each earning and actively maintaining their Certified Board Member Distinction.

Dr. Barbara Murray and Dr. Michael Krupp also sit on the Brevard County School Board.

Dr. Brian Binggeli is Brevard Schools superintendent.
