January 2017 is School Board Member Recognition Month and the ideal time to salute the service of 1500 plus school board members in Arkansas.
The month-long observance is an opportunity for your district and community to acknowledge the efforts of the men and women who advocate and shape the direction of our state’s public schools. Please use the month to highlight the accomplishments of your local board and encourage community leaders, business partners and local civic groups to join you in your recognition efforts. The following documents may be used to honor members:
- Tips for recognizing school board members
- Customizable certificate for each of your board members
- Copy of the State Board of Education Resolution (.pdf, .jpg)
- Copy of the Governor’s Proclamation (.pdf, .jpg)
- Sample news release
Please use #celebrateARschoolboards when you post recognition videos, photos, or information about your board on social media. Thank you for your support in recognizing the contributions of school board members in Arkansas!
