School Boards Stand Up 4 SC Public Schools

 

Dillon School District will join school districts throughout the state to celebrate School Board Recognition Month in January. More than 600 locally elected and appointed school board members throughout the state will be recognized by schools and communities for their service and dedication to public education.

 

The theme of this year’s celebration, “School Boards Stand Up 4 SC Public Schools,” recognizes the unique roles school boards play in promoting and advocating for quality education. They are elected/appointed by the people in their local communities to represent their voice and vision for their public schools.

 

“The foundation of school leadership is ensuring equal learning opportunities for all students,” says D. Ray Rogers, superintendent. “We’re proud of our district, and School Board Recognition Month is the time to recognize and celebrate the accomplishments of our elected trustees.”

 

In Dillon School District Four, school board members must develop policies and make tough decisions on complex educational and social issues impacting the entire community.

 

“School board members statewide make decisions that affect 690,000 South Carolina children and more than $3 billion in educational expenditures,” notes D. Ray Rogers, superintendent. “They preserve the core of our democracy—public education.”
