    January is School Board Recognition Month!

     

    We appreciate our hard-working school board who volunteer great amounts of time throughout the year to help create a very successful school district here in Hood River County. School boards support student achievement by focusing on: vision, standards, assessment, accountability, alignment, climate, collaborative relationships and continuous improvement. Through their actions in these eight areas, school boards place student achievement at the center of what they do while engaging educators and community members.
