Say thanks to our school board members!
January 2016 is School Board Recognition Month, and La Vernia Independent School District (ISD) joins other districts across the state as they honor the countless contributions of these locally elected advocates for public education.
Serving on a local school board is no easy task, particularly in today’s climate of rapid change and financial uncertainties. These men and women are elected to establish the policies that provide the framework for our public schools. They tackle a difficult job and shoulder enormous responsibilities. Overall, they represent you and take their leadership roles seriously by attending lengthy meetings; broadening their knowledge at conferences and seminars; and talking about the schools with business leaders, parents, and neighbors.
Our children benefit every day from the hard work and long hours contributed by our trustees. Serving as a crucial link between the community and classroom, this board is responsible for over 3,208 students, 450 employees, and four campuses. Please take a moment and tell school board members “thanks for caring about our children and giving so much to our La Vernia community.” Let them know we support them and that their dedicated service is recognized and truly appreciated.
Dr. Moreno is the superintendent of the La Vernia ISD.
