January is School Board Appreciation Month and we say thank you to our area school board members and superintendents, for serving our students and for representing the entire community.
We don’t think many would argue that these are the most complicated school years in history. Budgets, technology, shortages, social media and safety are just a few of the daily challenges.
School boards are the caretakers of public education. As much as we hold them accountable, we also need to show as much support.
