School Board Member Recognition Month

Tarrant City Schools will join school systems throughout the state to salute their local education leaders during Alabama's annual School Board Member Recognition Month in January.

The commemorative month is designed to recognize the contributions made by Alabama's more than 800 local school board members, including the members of the Tarrant Board of Education, who are charged with governing public education under state law.

Alabama school board members are chosen by their communities through elections or appointment to manage local schools.  They oversee multimillion-dollar budgets which fund education programs for more than 746,204 Alabama school children.  Your local school board members are part of a statewide team that supervises 90,821 employees, including 46,232 teachers, 3,218 administrators, and 35,574 support workers and others in 1,491 schools.

These volunteer leaders also are responsible for formulating school system policy, approving curricula, maintaining school facilities, and adhering to state and federal education law.  Legal concerns and the complexities of school finance, including budgeting and taxation, require them to spend many hours in board training programs and personal study to enhance their understanding of these issues.

Our deepest appreciation is extended to the dedicated men and women who make it possible for local citizens to participate in education in our community.  We salute the public servants of the Tarrant City School system whose commitment and civic responsibility make local control of public schools in our community possible: Ms. Debbie Hall, President, Mr. Allen Bailey, Vice President, Mr. Bruce Grant, Mr. Gene Horton, and Mr. Jesse Mendez.

Please join us by saying "thanks" to our school board members during Alabama's 23rd School Board Member Recognition Month.
