Texas Governor Greg Abbott has declared January School Board Recognition Month. According to the Governor, “School boards play a vital role in our effort to develop education in the Lone Star State as they work with parents, education professionals and community members to create successful learning environments.”
The Governor encourages all Texans to join in celebrating their local school boards, while keeping in mind that the “children we nurture right now will become leaders of our state and nation in the future.”

Each year, the Texas Association of School Boards coordinates the school board recognition campaign and offers a tool kit to help districts take part in school board appreciation activities.
District personnel across the state have done just that, appearing at school board meetings with gifts and hosting receptions in their school boards’ honor.
The Legal Digest also extends its gratitude to all of the hard-working school boards for their tireless efforts in serving the State’s students and educators!
