School Board Recognition Month

As we celebrate School Board Recognition Month, we want to extend our heartfelt gratitude to all school board members for their dedication and commitment to our students' education.

January is School Board Recognition Month in Michigan. As one of the original sponsors of this state and national observance, MASB's goal has been to build public understanding and support for the concept of local control of public schools. When the School Board Recognition program was launched in Michigan in 1989, only five states celebrated this special month. Today, nearly every state and governor participate.

Through MASB-sponsored activities, such as news releases, editorials and PSAs, we aim to create awareness and appreciation for the tremendous commitment school board members make to their communities. We value their efforts to help all children succeed by improving teaching and learning in school districts.
