The Northwest school board oversees an annual budget of around $152 million and serves in the interests of 19,000 students and more than 2,000 employees.
At the Jan. 13 board meeting, the district community showed its thanks to the six-member Board of Trustees as part of the Texas Association of School Boards’ School Board Recognition Month.
A three-minute video touted the board’s dedication and accomplishments and included comments of appreciation from staff, faculty and students. The video can be viewed by going to the school district’s web site and looking for the featured video section on the main page.
“School board members serve countless hours working to make public education the best it can be for every child,” Rue said. “In a climate of change and challenge, they develop policies and make tough decisions on complex educational and social issues that affect the entire community and the lives of individual students.”
The board, which is elected by voters living in the Northwest school district, is made up of President Mel Fuller, Vice President Josh Wright, Secretary Devona Holland and members Judy Copp, Anne Davis-Simpson and Mark Schluter.
