Board Recognition Month
by Melissa Kircher
Let’s say “thank you” to the Bethel-Tate Board of Education members during Board Recognition month this January. 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 educational 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 time.
School board members serve the public interest in public education — and serve the needs of our kids. They ensure that decisions about public schools are made as close to the needs of our community as possible.
This January, we want to sincerely thank the Bethel-Tate Board of Education for their dedication— our locally elected citizens who make decisions that affect, influence and direct the education of our youth.
