Denton ISD board members were presented a commemorative plaque from a Region 11 representative at Tuesday evening's regular board meeting.
The gesture was in recognition of the board's being named an outstanding school board by the administrative body.
DISD is among eight such regional boards honored in 2019 for exemplary service in the previous school year. The nomination submitted by Superintendent Jamie Wilson centered on the accomplishments during the legislative session, including an expansion of full-day pre-kindergarten programs and improved pay for some employees.
A formal recognition is scheduled to happen during a statewide educators' conference in Dallas on Sept. 20.
