School Board Recognition Week

The Martin County West School District joins school districts throughout the state to salute their local education leaders during Minnesota's Annual School Board Recognition Week February 17-21.  Minnesota school board members are chosen by their communities through election or appointment to manage local schools.

School board members oversee multimillion dollar budgets which fund education programs for more than 825,000 students in approximately 2,000 schools.  These volunteer leaders are also responsible for formulating school district policy, approve curricula, maintaining school facilities, an adhering to state and federal law.  Education issues and regulations, including budgeting and taxation, require members to spend many hours in board training programs and personal study to enhance their understanding of these issues.

Recently, the Martin County West School Board was awarded with the District Award of Distinction, meaning a majority of board members had received a Directors' Award or President's Award.  MCW was one of four school districts in the state to receive this award.  Board member Steve Olson received the President's Award and the Service Award for his 20 years of service.

The Martin County West School Board members are:
Michele Anderson, Treasurer
Ryan Baker, Director
Laura Borchardt, Clerk
Kent Janssen, Director
Steve Olson, Chairperson
Wendi Russenberger, Vice Chair
Sarah Rohman, Director
Allison Schmidt, Superintendent
