Sauk Rapids-Rice joins school districts throughout the state to salute their local Board of Education members during Minnesota’s annual School Board Recognition Week February 18-22.
The commemorative week is designed to recognize the contributions made by Minnesota’s school board members, including the Sauk Rapids-Rice School Board, who are charged with governing public education under state law.
These volunteer leaders also are responsible for formulating school district policy, approving curricula, maintaining school facilities, and adhering to state and federal education law. Legal concerns and the complexities of school finance, including budgeting and taxation, require them to spend many hours in board training programs and personal study to enhance their understanding of these issues.
Our deepest appreciation is extended to the dedicated men and women who make it possible for local citizens to participate in education in our community. We salute the public servants of the Sauk Rapids-Rice School Board whose commitment and civic responsibility make local control of public schools in our community possible: Ryan Butkowski, Lisa J. Braun, Mark Hauck, Robyn Holthaus, Lisa Loidolt, Tracy Morse and Jan Solarz.
Please join us by saying thanks to our school board members during Minnesota’s School Board Recognition Week.
