School Board Recognition Week

The Martin County West School District will join school districts throughout the state to salute their local education leaders during Minnesota's annual School Board Recognition Week February 22-26.
The commemorative week is designed to recognize the contributions made by Minnesota's school board members, including the Martin County West School Board, who are charged with governing public education under state law.
Minnesota school board members are chosen by their communities through election or appointment to manage local schools.  They oversee multimillion dollar budgets which fund education programs for more than 825,000 students in approximately 2,000 schools.  Their personnel decisions affect more than 52,000 teachers and thousands of administrators and support workers.
These volunteer leaders are responsible for formulating school district policy, approving curricula, maintaining school facilities, and adhering to state and federal education law.  Legal concerns and the complexities of school finance, including budgeting and taxation, require them to spend many hours in board training programs and personal study to enhance their understanding of these issues.
Our deepest appreciation is extended to the dedicated men and women who make it possible for local citizens to participate in education in our community
We salute the public servants of the Martin County West School Board whose commitment and civic responsibility make local control of public schools in our community possible:

Laura Borchardt, Clerk
Sarah Rohman, Chairperson
Wendi Russenberger, Vice Chair
Jeff Scholl, Director
Darren Thate, Director
Mark Wohlhuter, Treasurer

Please join us by saying thanks to our school board members duing Minnesota's School Board Recognition Week.

Chad Brusky, Interim Superintendent
