It’s no secret that school boards matter, and that’s why we need good school board members like YOU! Local school boards effect change in powerful ways by using their familiarity with the environ to directly affect students in their area. Balancing differing viewpoints, challenging political landscapes, and complex issues, make this role challenging. Nevertheless, good school board members do just this, creating positive changes for our students each day!
