Saluda County School District joined school districts throughout the state and nation to celebrate School Board Recognition Month at the January Board meeting held on January 22, 2018.
The theme “Superheroes for Public Education” recognizes the important roles school boards play in promoting and advocating for quality education. School board members are elected by the people in their local communities to represent their voice and to ensure the success of schools and students.
The efforts of school board members often go unrecognized. Board Recognition Month in January is a time that we can honor the year-round commitment that school board members make to our district and community.
In Saluda County School District, school board members develop policies and make tough decisions on complex educational and social issues impacting the entire community.
As a part of School Board Recognition Month, Saluda County Schools participated in an official signing of the South Carolina School Board Member Ethical Principles during their January school board meeting. By signing the principles, school board members publicly vowed to uphold effective governance principles and pledged to improve public education in their community.
