January is School Director Recognition Month

A quality public education is a key that can open doors of opportunity for many students. Providing that education takes a team of committed people from educators and staff to parents and administrators. The nine members of our school board are an important part of this team, making informed decisions that direct the course of our schools.


Every January, we take time to celebrate and recognize the challenging and vital work they do on behalf of our students, families and community.


School directors volunteer an average of 10 hours each month to board work, which includes adopting policy, voting on budgets and approving curriculum changes.  They take time to learn about the issues affecting public education and to seek innovative solutions.


During this month of recognition, please take a moment and show your gratitude for school directors’ time, dedication and effort year-round. The job they do is necessary to ensure our schools remain a pathway to a promising future. Thank them for advocating on behalf of our collective interest, and most importantly, for making the success of our children their priority.
