January is School Board Recognition Month


"School Boards Make a World of Difference"

January is School Board Recognition Month and an opporturnity for local schools and communities to honor the more than 2,700 elected members for untiring dedication to children and schools.

The foundation of school leadership is ensuring equal learning opportunities for all students.  We're proud of our district, and School Board Recognition Month is the time to recognize and celebrate the accomplishments of our elected board members.

In Vinita, school board members must develop policies and make tough decisions on complex educational and social issues impacting the entire community.  They bear responsibility for an annual budget of over 13 million dollars, 1,625 students, 235 employees and a number of ficiliities.

School board members make decisions that affect Oklahoma children and billions in educational expenditures.  They preserve the core of our democracy - public education.

Please let your Vinita school board members know how much you appreciate them the next time you see them or drop them a line.

The men and women serving Vinita Public Schools and their years of service are:  Dr. Jandra Mayer-Ward 3 years, Jim Shelton 26 years, Sammie Prince 3years, Bob Kerby first year, Jacqueline Bullock first year.
