School Board Appreciation Month

Missourians benefit every day from the dedicated energies and countless hours devoted by a group of more than 3,600 men and women from communities across the state. These public servants are elected by local constituents and do not receive compensation for their tireless efforts. They are the local school board members of Missouri.

During the week of January 25 - January 31, 2015, communities across the state will honor the dedicated service of their local boards of education during School Board Recognition Week as proclaimed by Governor Jay Nixon. The goal is to build awareness and understanding of the important function an elected board of education plays in communities and schools. All Missouri citizens are asked to recognize the important contributions of these men and women and focus attention on the vital role these public officials play in the education of Missouri's children.

School Board Recognition Week is sponsored by the Missouri School Boards’ Association.  MSBA is a private, not-for-profit organization that exists to help school boards succeed.  The Camdenton School District will recognize their Board of Education during their regular school board meeting on February 9 beginning at 5:00 p.m.
