Welcome To CSBA’s Golden Awards

CSBA believes in recognizing the extraordinary work school districts and county offices of education engage in across California. That’s why we are proud to announce the opening of this year’s Golden Awards program!

These awards honor the hard work and dedication of governing boards and district staff in creating innovative programs that improve student achievement and well-being in the state’s preK-12 public schools. They also recognize the important role education journalists play in creating awareness in the community.
