January is traditionally the month that we recognize and honor our school board members. Our school board members are outstanding community leaders who give freely of their time and talents to help guide our district. We are most fortunate in OCSD4- our board members have provided many years of service to our community and they are relentless in their vocal support for public education.
Board members face many difficult challenges in their role and one of the most difficult is during budget times. The board is often faced with the difficult decision of how to balance the budget with the least impact of reducing resources to our students. As you all know our board is very good stewards of the community’s money and they always attempt to maintain the high integrity of our staff and programs without tax increases. In past years this has been a difficult challenge as the State made reductions to funding. We are hopeful that for FY 15 budget cuts will not be one of the challenges to be addressed.
Our board members attend countless meetings, weekend conferences, and respond to many late-night and early-morning phone calls as part of the job they perform.
Our seven member board is comprised of very caring and well-informed members. They all have the best interest of our district at heart and make decisions that are good for the whole consolidated district.
Please join me in expressing your appreciation to these members: Mrs. Peggy J. Tyler, Chair, Dr. William O’Quinn, Vice-Chair, Mrs. Mary Brant, Secretary, and members Mr. Aaron Rudd, Mr. Joseph Garvin, Ms. Linda Huggins, and Mr. Randy Carrigg.
