January is School Director Recognition Month

In honor of school boards’ commitment to our students, schools and communities, the Pennsylvania School Board’s Association (PSBA) has once again designated January School Director Recognition Month.

Pennsylvania public schools educate nearly 2 million students and nearly 23,000 are in Pittsburgh Public Schools. The nine members of each local school board are a key part of the district’s administrative team, making informed decisions that shape public schools and provide a pathway to success for every student.

On average, school directors, who are unpaid, devote at minimum 30 hours per month to the challenging and complex responsibilities of board business, including adopting policy, voting on budgets, evaluating school security issues and reviewing hiring decisions.

To thank these locally elected officials, the District will recognize the members of its School Board at the Board’s Legislative Meeting taking place on January 29, 2020. To learn more about your School Board Member visit the Board's webpage.
