They work tireless hours without getting paid a dime, and it’s all to make sure that the students of Mansfield ISD receive the best education possible.
The seven MISD board trustees are the elected public servants who play a major part in setting the vision and policy for the district. They carefully oversee a multi-million dollar annual budget for more than 34,000 students, approximately 4,000 employees and 43 schools.
January is School Board Recognition Month, and MISD wanted to make sure these public school advocates realize how much they mean to the entire community.
“The members of the MISD school board have a passion for children and work to provide them quality educational opportunities in a fiscally responsible manner,” said Superintendent Dr. Jim Vaszauskas. “On behalf of the district, I want to send a heartfelt ‘thank you’ to the dedicated volunteers who serve on our school board.”
Some MISD campuses adopted a trustee for a day filled with pep rallies, food and fun. (View photos here.) Mansfield Mayor David Cook even proclaimed January 2017 as School Board Recognition Month in the city.
