School Board Recognition Month


January is School Board Recognition Month. It’s a great time to recognize our elected community members who selflessly give their time and energy to support high-quality public schooling for our youth. This community entrusts school board members in Port Angeles with responsibility for an annual budget of $60 million, 3,470 students, 479 employees, and 15 buildings.

School boards are charged with making decisions that can sometimes be quite difficult or require sifting through a great deal of information. They also bear responsibility for developing a vision that will guide the school district for years to come. Through collaboration as a team and with school district staff, their governance and advocacy are building the future of education in Washington state.

This January, we’re encouraging all community members to thank a board member. As a crucial bridge between the local community and the school district, their efforts are instrumental in helping all of us realize the hopes and dreams we have for the children of our community. Please thank them for volunteering their time and playing a critical civic role that helps form the bedrock of our democracy—public education.

The men and women serving the Port Angeles School District are:
