Honoring Our School Board Members
Members of the Burns Flat-Dill City School Board exemplify local control and decision-making in education. They volunteer an immeasurable amount of time and energy to ensure that our schools are providing the best education possible for the children of our community. For their superb dedication, the BF-DC students, staff, and faculty would like to take this opportunity to show them our appreciation during School Board Recognition Month.
The decisions of these citizen school board members greatly affect our children as they establish the policies that provide the framework for our public schools. They represent you, and they take this responsibility very seriously by attending extensive, and at times challenging meetings, conferences and workshops where they broaden their knowledge about education. They also meet with other board members around the state to see what is taking place outside of our district.
Our board is one of more than 450 such boards across the state. These boards provide local control of public schools, meaning that decisions are made by local, elected representatives who understand the community’s unique problems, standards, culture and situations. With the advice of the educational professionals they hire, our school board has an impact on virtually every aspect of our schools.
It is a huge responsibility and one that should not be taken lightly. Too often we neglect to recognize the dedication and hard work of these men and women who represent us. The staff and students of our school district are asking all community members to take a moment to tell a school board member “thank you for caring about the education of our children.”
So, thank you to the committed men and women who make it possible for local citizens to have a say about education in our communities. We salute the public servants of the Burns Flat-Dill City School system, whose dedication and civic responsibility make local control of public schools in our community possible. We applaud them for their vision and actions to help shape a better tomorrow. Our heartfelt thanks goes out to Mr. Jimmy Piercey, Mr. Brian Mooney, Mr. Jeff Headrick, Mrs. Jill Birdwell and Mrs. Marva Webb. We appreciate you!
