School Board Recognition Month

Ohio Governor John Kasich proclaimed the month of January 2018 as School Board Recognition Month with the theme “School boards lead so students can achieve.” School Board members contribute hundreds and hundreds of hours each year leading their districts. Whether crafting policies, hiring top-notch administrators, listening to staff and student concerns, or recognizing outstanding programs, board members always keep their eyes on the prize of student achievement. Ohioans 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 students.

Four County Career Center is joining with other districts throughout the state to recognize the important contributions school board members make to their communities. The Career Center is appreciative of their school board members who assure that the school is providing the best career and technical education possible for the students.
