School Board Member Appreciation Week

February 17-21, 2020, is Minnesota School Board Member Appreciation Week.

School board members help make decisions that have a tremendous impact on our children’s future and the quality of life in our communities.  School board membership is personally demanding and board members spend countless hours preparing for and participating in their monthly meetings. They also devote a great deal of time to studying educational issues and laws and listening to the concerns of parents and teachers. In fact, they never are completely “off the job” as board members.

School Board Member Recognition Week is being celebrated throughout Minnesota. Take the time to thank a board member for the important role they play in helping our school district take care of our community’s children.
