January is BOE appreciation month
Public education is the backbone of American society, and local school boards are deeply rooted in U.S. tradition. In fact, in 1966 the people of Kansas amended our state’s constitution to specifically call for local public schools that are ‘maintained, developed and operated by locally elected boards.’
The seven individuals on our board of education are responsible for setting the vision for our local education program and partners with staff and other members of the community to provide the facilities and infrastructure to achieve that vision.
Their service to our school district is voluntary and they spend hundreds of hours serving our schools.
This January, please join us as we thank our school board members for volunteering their time, for fulfilling this very important civic responsibility, and for advocating on behalf of every child in our community.
Our USD 490 Board of Education members are:
Vicki Coash, Rob Lane, Heather Nichols, Haley Remsberg, Tom Storrer, and Norm Wilks.
