The Chino Valley School District has issued a Proclamation naming January, 2011 as CVUSD School Board Recognition Month. Here is the text of the Proclamation in full:
Whereas, these are challenging times for public education and for the work of local school board members;
Whereas, school boards are responsible for putting into place a system for students to learn and achieve at the highest level possible;
Whereas, excellence in the classroom begins with excellence in the boardroom;
Whereas, the key work of school boards includes taking action to create a vision for what students should know and be able to do; to establish clear standards for student performance; to ensure that student assessments are tied to established standards; to be accountable to the community for operating schools that support student achievement; to align school district resources to ensure that students meet standards; to create a climate assuring safe and orderly classrooms; to build collaborative relationships to solve common problems; and to ensure continuous improvement; and we are proud of the work school boards do and the role school board members play in creating a quality public education system that is fundamental to a strong democratic society;
NOW, THEREFORE, We, CHINO VALLEY UNIFIED SCHOOL DISTRICT #51, hereby declare our appreciation to the members of the Chino Valley Unified School District #51 School Board and proclaim the month of January 2011 to be School Board Recognition Month. We urge all citizens to join us in recognizing the dedication and hard work of local school board members in preparing today's students for tomorrow's world.
