January is School Board Recognition Month!
Posted on 01/09/2018

Last night’s meeting of the McMinnville School Board celebrated School Board Recognition Month with a formal proclamation recognizing their service, signed and read into the record by Superintendent Maryalice Russell.

School principals also presented board members with tokens of appreciation and books that will be donated to their school libraries in the board member’s honor.

In other board business, new board member Dr. Paul Haddeland was sworn in by board chair Dr. Scott Schieber. Dr. Haddeland will fill the term remainder of Dr. Scott Gibson, who resigned due to a change in residency.

Other board members include Carson Benner, Janis Braich, Barbara Carter, Dr. Tim Roberts and Larry Vollmer.

The proclamation states

WHEREAS, school boards create a vision for what students should know and be able to do;

WHEREAS, school boards establish clear standards for student performance;

WHEREAS, school boards ensure that student assessments are tied to established standards;

WHEREAS, school boards are accountable to the community for operating schools that support student achievement;

WHEREAS, school boards align school district resources to ensure that students meet standards;

WHEREAS, school boards create a climate that supports the philosophy that all children can learn at high levels;

WHEREAS, school boards build collaborative relationships based on trust, teamwork and shared accountability; and

WHEREAS, school boards are committed to continuous education and training on issues related to student achievement;

NOW, THEREFORE, I hereby declare my appreciation to the members of the McMinnville School Board and proclaim the month of January to be School Board Recognition Month.

I urge all citizens to join me in recognizing the dedication and hard work of local school board members in preparing today's students for tomorrow's world.
