Good time to appreciate school boards

To the editor:

As school districts develop their budgets for next year, the New York State School Boards Association would like to highlight school board members and the important work they do. That is why we have launched a campaign celebrating school board service.

We invite your readers to join NYSSBA in recognizing the contributions of school board members by visiting our Facebook page ( Here you can find out more about our campaign and celebrate the school board members in your community.

While crafting and approving budgets is a large part of what school board members do, there are many more facets to their service.

Let’s honor these unsung heroes who devote their time and efforts to improving the lives of children in our communities. After all, school board members are your neighbors.
