Ladue Schools Board of Education Vice President Kisha Lee has attained both Advanced and Master Board Member Certification from the Missouri School Boards’ Association.
Lee, who first was elected to the Board in 2017 and currently is serving in her second term, was formally recognized by the Ladue Schools superintendent at the district’s Board of Education meeting on Monday, June 28.
“Kisha is a true advocate for equity and opportunity in every child’s development,” said Superintendent Dr, Jim Wipke. “We are grateful to Kisha for her service to Ladue Schools on our Board and various district committees. She focuses on all aspects of a student’s education and truly helps create real progress and forward thought for our community.”
During her tenure as a board member, Lee has been a leading voice in helping the district remain accountable to its diversity, equity, and inclusion goals and weaving them into the fabric of Ladue Schools.
She currently serves on the following Ladue Schools Board Advisory Committees: Facilities, Diversity, Equity and Inclusion, Fifth Grade Center, high school, C.U.R.E. Parent group, and Parent Advisory Council for Special Education.
Board member certification involves ongoing professional development of board members beyond the MSBA-required training.
It includes earning credits in one of five education-related study strands, additional reading and writing, and attending additional MSBA meetings and workshops.
