The Metropolitan Nashville Board of Public Education will join school districts throughout the state to salute their local education leaders during Tennessee’s annual School Board Appreciation Week January 22-28, 2012.

The commemorative week is designed to recognize the contributions made by Tennessee’s school board members, including the Metropolitan Nashville Board of Education, who are charged with governing public education under state law.

Tennessee school board members are chosen by their communities through election or appointment to manage local schools. They oversee multimillion dollar budges which fund education programs for more than 934,000 students in approximately 1,736 schools. Their personnel decisions affect more than 69,500 teachers, administrators and support workers.

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 our school board whose commitment and civic responsibility make local control of public schools in our community possible:

Gracie Porter, Chair, Mark North, Vice Chair, Dr. JoAnn Brannon, Anna Shepherd, Sharon Gentry, Ed.D., Cheryl D. Mayes, Ed Kindall, Kay Simmons, and Michael W. Hayes.

Please join us by saying thank you to our school board members during Tennessee’s School Board Appreciation Week!

Effective January 10, 2012, the Board meeting schedule will change slightly. The Board will conduct its business only once a month, meaning they will vote on action items at the second Tuesday meeting (or first meeting of the month). The fourth Tuesday meeting will be dedicated for work sessions, allowing board members to delve into selected topics and engage in meaningful dialogue with administration.

The Board decided to give us a couple of months to plan for this change.

The 2012 Board Meeting schedule is as follows:

 Board Meetings  Agenda Item Submission Due Date
 January 10, 2012  January 4, 2012
 February 14, 2012  January 4, 2012
 March 13, 2012  March 7, 2012
 April 10, 2012  April 4, 2012
