This past year required an unusual combination of skills and talents from district leaders. Unexpected circumstances resulted in changes in laws and regulations, and those statewide changes required adaptability, quick problem-solving, teamwork, and leadership at the district level.
Navigating through unfamiliar waters became a daily task that required a steady hand on the rudder, and that’s exactly what our district’s board provided. When we needed them, our trustees came through, charting a course that protected our most vulnerable while ensuring that academic progress could continue for all students.
Board service is a volunteer effort, accepted by only a few in the community. It is a tough job with no salary. It is a critically important job that requires an election and then mandated training. It is a responsibility that takes time, a mature outlook, and careful decision-making.
