The theme of this year’s School Board Recognition Month is Forward, Together, which highlights the collaboration among school leadership, teachers, and parents on behalf of students.
“Recognizing the efforts of our volunteer school board is so important because of all the hard work trustees put in to making our district a success,” Dr. Saul Hinojosa said.
Somerset ISD is a celebrating many achievements this year. For the first time in the district's history Somerset ISD has become a Texas Education Agency A-rated district. The Somerset Independent School District is also celebrating its 100th anniversary.
Dan Troxell, executive director of the Texas Association of School Boards, applauded the efforts of trustees in providing leadership and good governance so that school districts can focus on educating the 5.4 million public schoolchildren in their care.
“Texas school boards are critical to the success of students and the future of Texas,” Troxell said. “Boards lead their districts in the right direction, providing oversight, setting goals, overseeing the budget, and selecting and evaluating the superintendent. These volunteers serve for the betterment of their local schools and communities.”
