January is School Director Recognition Month

January is School Director Recognition Month. In Centennial, we are for­tu­nate to have a School Board who demon­strates a strong com­mit­ment to our stu­dents and our com­mu­ni­ty. Below, is a res­o­lu­tion devel­oped by Pennsylvania School Board Association, unan­i­mous­ly approved July 18, 1985 and Reaffirmed December 2, 2019, that pro­claims January as School Director Recognition Month in Pennsylvania:

WHEREAS, the role of local­ly elect­ed school offi­cials has served the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania and local com­mu­ni­ties in meet­ing the needs of pub­lic edu­ca­tion since the pas­sage of the Free School Act in 1834; and

WHEREAS, these local boards have dis­charged their respon­si­bil­i­ties to pub­lic edu­ca­tion in a man­ner which has placed pub­lic edu­ca­tion in the fore­front of our edu­ca­tion­al sys­tems; and

WHEREAS, local­ly elect­ed offi­cials have dis­tin­guished them­selves and their com­mu­ni­ties in this unpaid, vol­un­teer pub­lic ser­vice com­mit­ment; and

WHEREAS, the con­tri­bu­tions of these men and women should be rec­og­nized and appre­ci­at­ed by those who ben­e­fit from the work­ings of our pub­lic school sys­tem;

NOW THEREFORE BE IT RESOLVED that the Board of Directors of the Pennsylvania School Boards Association here­by pro­claims the month of January as School Director Recognition Month in this com­mon­wealth; and

FURTHER RESOLVE that this procla­ma­tion be com­mu­ni­cat­ed to all school dis­tricts, school offi­cials and local com­mu­ni­ties in a planned pro­gram which brings vis­i­bil­i­ty and aware­ness of the role of local­ly elect­ed school offi­cials to the cit­i­zen­ry of this com­mon­wealth. On behalf of the Administration, Faculty, Staff and Students, thank you for all you do!
