COLUMBUS — The Ohio School Boards Association is celebrating School Board Recognition Month in January 2016 to build awareness and understanding of the vital function an elected board of education plays in our society. School Board Recognition Month honors the members of Ohio’s more than 700 city, exempted village, local and joint vocational boards of education and educational service centers governing boards for their commitment to providing quality public education to Ohio’s school children.
The Arcanum-Butler Local School District is joining with other districts throughout the state to recognize the important contributions school board members make to their communities.
“Our school community benefits from the dedication and leadership of our board members,” said Superintendent, John Stephens. “Furthermore, they represent a commitment to local citizen control and decision-making in education. Even though we are making a special effort during January to show appreciation to our school board members, we recognize their contributions reflect a year‑round commitment on their part. On behalf of the students, staff and administration of the Arcanum-Butler Local School District I would like to thank our board members for their continued service.”
