Tri-Village Local School District is celebrating School Board Recognition Month in January 2019 to build awareness and understanding of the vital function an elected board of education plays in our society. School Board Recognition Month honors the members of Ohio’s more than 700 city, exempted village, local and joint vocational boards of education and educational service centers governing boards for their commitment to providing quality public education to Ohio’s children.
Being an effective school board member is no easy task, particularly in today’s climate of change and challenge. School board members need to be knowledgeable about many complex education and social issues, and carry out initiatives and directives from both federal and state governments. To face these demands of governing our public schools, they give countless hours of personal
Ohioans benefit every day from the dedicated energies and countless hours devoted by a group of more than 3,400 men and women across the state. These public servants are elected to serve by local citizens and they unselfishly contribute their time and talents toward the advancement of public education. They represent the commitment to local citizen control and decision making in education. Even though we are making a special effort by highlighting these individuals this month we recognize their contributions reflect a year-round commitment on their part.
The Tri-Village Local School District is joining with other districts throughout Ohio to recognize the important contributions school board members make to their communities. This month, you are invited to honor the contributions and dedication of our local board members, these locally elected citizens make decisions that affect, influence and direct the education of our youth in a positive way. Please join me in gratitude by saying “Thank You” to our local members who make a difference in our community, for every child, every day.
