School Board Recognition Week set for Feb. 22 - 26

The Minnesota School Boards Association (MSBA) has set Feb. 22 - 26 as School Board Recognition Week in Minnesota. Through this designated time, MSBA has hoped to build an awareness and understanding of the vital function an elected school board plays in our society.

The Kimball Area School District is joining with other districts throughout the state to recognize the important contributions board members make to communities and school districts.

These volunteer leaders are responsible for:

• Fiscal and budget decisions,

• Formulating school district policy,

• Approving curricula,

• Maintaining school facilities and

• Adhering to state and federal education law.

We salute the public servants of the Kimball Area School Board whose commitment and civic responsibility make local control of public schools in our community possible: Robin Dockery, Jody Gagnon, Kurt Helgeson, Tom Schreiner, Doug Stenger, and Tim Zipoy.

These board members received a certificate of appreciation for their time and effort at the board meeting Feb. 10.
