Board Recognition Month

Tue Jan 12, 2016

January is Board Recognition Month! Thank you to our school board members for providing your services toward a better future for our children.

 January 2016 is School Board Recognition Month, and Longview ISD joins other districts across the state as they honor the countless contributions of these locally elected advocates for public education.

 

“Serving on a local school board is no easy task, particularly in a time of fast-paced change and innovation. These men and women are elected to establish the policies that provide the framework for our public schools. They tackle a difficult job and shoulder enormous responsibilities. Overall, they represent you and your children. The trustees take the enormity of these roles seriously by attending lengthy meetings; broadening their knowledge at conferences and seminars; and talking with the community and staff to make Longview ISD the best place for your children to go,” said Dr. James Wilcox, Longview ISD Superintendent.

 

“Too often we overlook the dedication of these local citizens who work without pay. So each year the Texas Association of School Boards (TASB) encourages communities to show appreciation to these individuals for their unfailing commitment to the success of all students. The staff and students of our district thank our board members for their commitment to help shape a better tomorrow,” he said.

 

“Our children benefit every day from the hard work and long hours contributed by our trustees. Please take a moment and tell school board members ‘thanks for caring about our children and giving so much to our community.” Let them know we support them and their dedicated service is recognized and truly appreciated,” he said.
