Superintendent praises School Board

web posted January 5, 2008
Dear Editor:

The month of January marks the annual observance of School Board Recognition Month. This is a time to salute the work of school board members and celebrate public education.
The theme of this year's celebration, "School Boards: Leading Voices for Public Schools," reflects our combined commitment to leadership to advocate for support of quality and accountability of public schools to assure all students achieve.
In the Edgefield County School District, school board members must develop policies and make tough decisions on complex educational and social issues impacting the entire community. They bear responsibility for an annual budget of $27,727,176 million, 4,000 students, 650 employees and nine buildings. They carry out the truest form of representative government in our democracy; volunteer public service and preserving the core of our democratic land--public education.
Too often we neglect to recognize the dedication and hard work of these men and women who represent us. I invite you to recognize and celebrate the work of your school trustees. Invite them out for coffee. Ask how you might help support your local neighborhood schools. Write your school board members a thank you note. Let them know you appreciate what they do for students in the Edgefield County School District.
The men and women serving the Edgefield County School District are Mrs. Sallie Cooks- Chairwoman, Mr. Scott Chitty-Vice Chairman; Mr. James Bibbs-Secretary, Mr. Brad Covar, Mrs. Mary Alice Jackson, Mrs. Viola Jackson and Mr. Andy Livingston.

Dr. Mary Rice Crenshaw
Superintendent Edgefield County School District

School Board Recognition Month, in January, is celebrated by 85 local school districts in South Carolina, as more than 630 elected school board members are honored by their schools and community for untiring dedication to school governance.
