2018 NYS School Board Recognition Week
Cortland Enlarged City School District is joining all public school districts across the state to celebrate School Board
Recognition Week to honor local board members for their commitment to the education of our children. The New York State School Boards Association recognizes October 22-26 as School Board Recognition Week. This is a time to promote awareness and understanding of the important work performed by school board members.
“It takes strong schools to build a strong community, and these men and women devote countless hours to making sure our schools are helping every child learn at a higher level,” Michael Hoose said. “They make the tough decisions every month and spend many hours studying education issues and regulations in order to provide the kind of accountability our citizens expect.”
Mr. Hoose said the key work of school boards is to raise student achievement by:
"School board members give Cortland citizens a voice in decision making. Even though we make a special effort to show our appreciation in October, their contribution is a year-round committment," continued Mr. Hoose.
- Creating a shared vision for the future of education
- Setting the direction of the school district to achieve the highest student performance
- Providing accountability for student achievement results
- Developing a budget that aligns district resources to improve achievement
- Supporting a healthy school district culture in which to work and to learn
