Our Governor and the State Board of Education have recognized January as School Board Recognition Month. The Coldwater Community Schools is joining local and intermediate school districts across the state to thank these community volunteers for their untiring dedication to public education.
Michiganders benefit every day from the dedicated energies and countless hours devoted by a group of more than 4,000 men and women across the state. These public servants are elected to serve our community and receive little recognition for the difficult job they do. They are dedicated individuals who are committed to the continuing success of our schools and students.
In a climate of change and challenge, school board members in the Coldwater Community Schools develop policies and make tough decisions on complex educational and social issues that affect the entire community and impact individual students. They bear responsibility for an annual budget of $25 million, over 3100 students, 300 employees and nine buildings.
We proudly join educators and community members in saluting these education advocates as they provide vision and leadership for student achievement, academic programs, district funding and school facilities. Their service ensures that decisions about local public schools are made by those most familiar with the needs of our community’s children and families. They preserve the core of our democracy—public education.
Thank a board member for their untiring service to our students and community; and visit the Coldwater Community Schools’ website for more information concerning the district. www.coldwaterschools.org
