School Board Recognition Month

Board of Education General 03 300HENDERSON, Ky. (1/4/13) - The students, faculty, staff and administrators of Henderson County Schools are saluting elected education leaders this month in Kentucky’s 18th annual observation of School Board Recognition Month.
 
Lisa Baird, Greg Hunsaker, Ben Johnston, Jennifer Keach, and Jon L. Sights are among the 872 school board members being honored across the Commonwealth this month by 174 local school districts.
 
“Our school board members do far more than show up at one meeting a month, cast a few votes, pocket their total compensation of $75 and go home,” said Superintendent Dr. Thomas L. Richey. “Most folks would be very surprised at the hours of preparation, of questions, of discussion of options and sometimes differences of opinion that our board members are involved in for all of the issues that come up at every meeting and work session.”
 
Dr. Richey continues, “Our district is working in a new state school assessment system that gave us some good measurements as well as some challenges when the scores came out a few weeks ago. The board members are key players with the teachers, principals, site based councils, and parent advisory groups as we work to move every child to proficiency in learning skills. Our board members have spent countless hours gaining an understanding of the new accountability system to prepare them to make the decisions that will support our district wide improvement. I’m proud to work side by side with this group of selfless colleagues.”
 
Henderson County Schools will honor board members during the January 22nd monthly Board of Education meeting set for 6:00 p.m. at 631 North Green Street in Henderson, Kentucky. The community is always welcomed and encouraged to support board members and schools.
