January is School Board Recognition Month

The month of January is School Board Recognition Month which provides a unique opportunity to acknowledge a special group of volunteer elected officials in education. This month of recognition offers communities across Pennsylvania a way to acknowledge the continuing efforts of school board members in providing leadership and guidance to local school districts. Across the state, there are over 4,000 school board members who dedicate countless hours of hard work to improving education for our children.

School board members take their responsibility and public trust very seriously, dedicating an enormous number of hours to their work both in and outside of board meetings. Attending school functions, preparing for board meetings, reading financial reports, agendas and proposals, and making a host of difficult and challenging decisions are just a few of the regular activities board members participate in through their service. Today, more than ever, school board leaders are faced with the overwhelming charge of providing a quality education at a time when financial constraints weigh heavily on the health of school district budgets. In an era of unprecedented choice in education, school boards are also tasked with charting a course that provides long-term, sustainable success for current and future students in all of Pennsylvania’s public schools.

Please help us in extending a thank you to our School Board Members here in New Hope-Solebury for their tireless efforts in helping to make us one of the best in the state.
