School Director Recognition Month
School Director Recognition Month
Sample Press Release
In honor of school boards’ commitment to our students, schools and communities, January is once again designated School Director Recognition Month.
Pennsylvania public schools educate nearly 2 million students and 1487 are in Charleroi Area School District. The nine members of each local school board are a key part of the district’s administrative team, making informed decisions that shape public schools and provide a pathway to success for every student.
To thank these locally elected officials, the Charleroi Area Board of Directors will be acknowledged during our January 21, 2020, meeting at 7:00 p.m. in the High School Community Room.
On average, school directors, who are unpaid, devote up to 10 hours per month to the challenging and complex responsibilities of board business, including adopting policy, voting on budgets, evaluating school security issues and reviewing hiring decisions.
The Charleroi Area School Board also has taken the step of adopting the PSBA Principles for Governance and Leadership – a framework of action steps designed to increase boards’ effectiveness. According to research by the education research firm CRA, school board actions have a direct effect on student achievement. Therefore, it is crucial that boards engage in actions that increase their effectiveness for the betterment of the students they serve.
Go to https://www.psba.org/about/governance/principles/ to read the Principles for Governance and Leadership and to see a list of Pennsylvania public school boards that have adopted them.
