January is School Board Recognition Month and Manheim Township School District, along with other districts across the state of Pennsylvania, thank these local leaders for their dedication and willingness to serve as advocates for our children and public schools. As elected officials, School Board members are the voice of our community, serving first and foremost in the best interest of Manheim Township students.
Even though we make a special effort in January to show appreciation to our board members, we realize their many contributions reflect a year-round commitment. They generously give of themselves to ensure that decisions directly affecting our school are made by representatives of this community, people who are close to our schools and know our teachers, parents, and students. School Board members are elected officials who spend countless hours reviewing budgets, approving curriculum and textbook choices, reviewing hiring decisions, adopting policy, and evaluating the academic and operational results of the district. They are our neighbors, friends, community leaders and engaged senior citizens doing a necessary job for the benefit of our children.
