January is National School Board Recognition Month

School Board Recognition Month graphic

January is National School Board Recognition Month - a great time to recognize our locally elected community members who selflessly volunteer their time, talents and energy in support of high-quality public education here in Derry Township.

The time spent in bi-weekly board meetings represents just a small fraction of the hours DTSD school board members dedicate to their posts. Board members contribute hundreds of hours each year crafting policies, building fiscally responsible budgets, carefully listening to constituent input, along with serving on committees & as delegates to community organizations. They work hard at training sessions to keep abreast of the latest trends in educational leadership and spend many hours in our schools and at extracurricular events.
