ISD 318 Joins Districts throughout the State in Celebrating School Board Recognition Week February 19-23
The Minnesota School Boards Association has set February 19-23 as School Board Recognition Week in Minnesota.
“It takes strong schools to build a strong community, and these men and women devote countless hours to making sure our schools are helping every child learn at a higher level,” said Joni Olson, ISD 318 Superintendent. “They make the tough decisions every month and spend many hours studying education issues and regulations in order to provide the kind of accountability our citizens expect.”
The week is a time to build awareness and understanding of the vital function an elected board of education plays in our society. ISD 318 is joining all public schools districts across the state to celebrate School Board Recognition Week to honor local board members for their commitment to Grand Rapids and Bigfork.
“School board members give the citizens of Grand Rapids and Bigfork a voice in education decision making. Even though we make a special effort to show our appreciation in February, their contribution is a year-round commitment,” continued Olson.
The members serving our district are as follows: Tom Peltier, Board Chair; Ben Hawkins, Clerk; Molly Miskovich. Treasurer; Dr. Malissa Bahr, Interim Director; Pat Medure, Director; Sue Zeige, Pending Interim Director.
