From the first public school house in an old church in San Francisco in 1850, boards of education have grown to oversee more than 1,000 school districts and county offices of education in California. From the four students in San Benito County’s Panoche Elementary School District to the more than 600,000 students in the Los Angeles Unified School District, trustees provide critical support for California’s 6 million public school students.
This January during School Board Recognition Month, Parlier Unified School District, along with CSBA, would like to salute our Board of Trustees and all local educational agency boards. Roughly 5,100 California school board trustees — the largest group of elected officials in the state — aid in supporting student success by establishing policy priorities and benchmarks. Trustees provide a critical accountability link between the schools and the community, and offer an accessibility to voters that is unrivaled by other public officeholders.
WE APPRECIATE OUR SCHOOL BOARD MEMBERS!
