School Board Recognition

WHEREAS, providing for the education of Michigan’s school-aged children is a fundamental duty of state government, as stated in Article VIII, Section 2, of the Michigan Constitution of 1963; and 

WHEREAS, the education of our youth is the foundation upon which the economic, social, and intellectual capital of our state is built; and 

WHEREAS, locally-elected school boards play an important and vital role in a representative democracy, and decisions made by local boards of education directly influence instruction in Michigan’s public schools; and

WHEREAS, our 82 local board members contribute hundreds of hours each year leading their districts- whether it is by deliberating important decisions about curriculum; adopting policies; hiring top notch personnel and administrators; listening to staff, parent, and student concerns; or recognizing outstanding programs- board members always keep their eyes on the goal of student achievement; and 

WHEREAS, these decisions affect the present and future lives of children, and also set direction to prepare all students to be competitive in a local, state, national, and global 21st Century knowledge economy, and

WHEREAS, local school board members are exceptional people who tackle the enormous job of governing school districts, and demonstrate, to the over 15,600 K-12 students in Lenawee County, the high character of civic duty and responsibility that all citizens should engage; and

WHEREAS, Local School Board Member Recognition Month provides an opportunity to build stronger relationships between the thousands of women and men who champion the cause of public education as board members, their schools, and the communities they serve; and

THEREFORE BE IT RESOLVED that the Lenawee County Board of Commissioners recognize the contributions of the local boards of education to the academic success of public school students, and express its sincerest appreciation for their focus on the well-being and achievement of children throughout the county; and 

BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED, that the Lenawee County Board of Commissioners proclaims January 2019 as Local School Board Member Recognition Month in Lenawee County, and encourage local school districts and community leaders to appropriately recognize dedicated local school board members.
