February is School Board Member Appreciation Month

February 3, 2017

  • To build awareness of the crucial role School Board members plays in our communities and schools, Virginia Gov. Terry McAuliffe has proclaimed February 2017 as School Board Appreciation Month.
  • Board members are extraordinary people who voluntarily tackle the enormous job of governing school divisions. Their actions and decisions affect the present and future lives of our children. Recognizing board members for this commitment and sacrifice takes a combined effort on the part of all they serve: administrators, school staff, students, and the community. Even though s howing appreciation should be a year-round process, taking advantage of the designated School Board Appreciation Month in February assures that these important people receive some of the thanks they deserve.
