School Board Appreciation 2017


JANUARY IS SCHOOL DIRECTOR RECOGNITION MONTH

Did you know?

You may be ignoring an important segment of your school community: school directors who contribute many volunteer public service hours to school related duties and responsibilities. You are encouraged to congratulate, support and salute your local school directors throughout the month of January.  Such recognition can be a bright spot in an otherwise difficult year for board  members who need to feel appreciated.

·         4,500 school directors serve Pennsylvania’s 500 public school districts; all boards have nine members.

·         School director elections are held every two years, on a 5-4 rotation to ensure continuity.

·         All board members are elected to four-year terms.

·         School directors are elected locally; however, the state constitution delegates to them the responsibility to administer the school system as agents of the General Assembly.

·         All serve as volunteers, without pay.

·         The “typical” Pennsylvania school director is male, well-educated, 55-59 years of age is married with two children attending public schools,  and voluntarily devotes 16-20 hours per month to school board business.

·         16% of those serving on school boards in 2016 are retirees.

·         6% of school directors are homemakers, 9% are self-employed or business owners and 5% are office supervisors.

·         The number of female school directors was 41% in 2015.

·         More than three quarters, 75% of Pennsylvania school directors have attained a college degree or beyond.

·         23% of Pennsylvania board members have more than 10 years’ experience in 2015.

·         50% of all districts involve students at their local board meetings. Of those districts, 97% rate their involvement with students at meetings as satisfactory or highly satisfactory.

·         88% of school boards engaged their communities by participating in cooperative projects with business and community organizations.

·         Pennsylvania school directors continue to keep adequate school funding at the top of the list of the most important educational concerns facing public schools.

·         43% of school directors identified public service,  and desire to give back and contribute to public education as the primary motivating factor in their decision to run for school director.

THANK YOU TO OUR SCHOOL BOARD MEMBERS FOR THEIR DEDICATION TO THE EDUCATION OF OURSTUDENTS!  YOUR SERVICE IS APPRECIATED!
