KHPS December Letter from the Superintendent

From: http://www.khps.org

Dear Friends,

As citizen leaders, individual school board members face complex and demanding challenges. They are often described as having the most important, yet most challenging, volunteer jobs in the country. School board members are just ordinary citizens with extraordinary dedication to our nation’s public schools.

Please recognize the vital contributions of our seven elected board members and the crucial role they play in the education of our children. Their job is to establish a vision for the education program, design a structure to achieve that vision, ensure that schools are accountable to the community and strongly advocate continuous improvement in student learning.
