School Director Recognition Month
In honor of school boards’ commitment to our students, schools and communities, January is once again designated as School Director Recognition Month.
Pennsylvania public schools educate nearly 2 million students and 3,000 are in Manheim Central School District. The nine members of our local school board are a key part of the district’s administrative team, making informed decisions that shape public schools and provide a pathway to success for every student.
To thank these locally elected officials, the Manheim Central School District honored them virtually at the School Board Meeting on January 25, 2021. The High School presented Baron blankets, the Middle School gifted customized journals, and the Elementary Schools entertained them with a Super Hero Appreciation Video. Dr. Aiken, Superintendent, provided each Board Member with a Certificate of Recognition while expressing his gratitude for all they do.
On average, school directors, who are unpaid, devote up to 10 hours per month to the challenging and complex responsibilities of board business, including adopting policy, voting on budgets, evaluating school security issues and reviewing hiring decisions. The impact of the coronavirus pandemic has added an additional challenge to school boards, as they determine how best to provide for the needs of students and their families in this new environment.
The Manheim Central School District is grateful to Board members Linda Williams, Robert Iosue, Patrick McGeehan, Stephen Bushey, Michael Clair, Dr. Edward Frick, Matthew Linder, John Nied, and Stacie Ritter for their dedication and commitment to our students, staff and the community. We are proud to have them as our Baron Leaders!
