As citizen leaders, individual school board members face complex and demanding challenges. Yet few people fully understand the scope and far-reaching implications of board members’ responsibilities. All Oklahoma citizens should recognize the vital contributions of these men and women and focus attention on the crucial role these elected public officials play in the education of our children.
Their job is to establish a vision for the education program, design a structure to achieve that vision, ensure schools are accountable to the community and strongly advocate continuous improvement in student learning. That job entails many meetings; numerous school functions to attend; reams of reports, agendas, proposals and other information to read and study; and a host of difficult decisions to make.
School board members come from all walks of life. Although they wear many hats in the workday world, school board members put on a collective hat when leading their school districts. Board members must pull together as a team toward a common goal—helping students achieve. Though they may individually disagree on certain issues, their role as a board is to consistently strive toward that common goal.
School board members: Kelli Mitchell, Todd Corbin and Pam Dunlap
The time spent in board meetings represents just a small fraction of the hours school board members spend leading their districts. They also work hard at seminars and training sessions to keep abreast of the latest trends in educational leadership, and are involved in community activities and school events.
In recognition of their dedicated service, January is designated School Board Recognition Month. This is a time to show appreciation and begin to better understand how local trustees work together to provide a better future for our children. In January, join with others from throughout the state to salute the men and women who provide grassroots governance of public schools.
