SCHOOL BOARD LEADERS HONORED IN JANUARY
January is School Board Recognition Month and an opportunity for local schools and
communities to honor Oklahoma’s more than 2,700 elected school board members for their
dedication to children and schools.
“Providing our community’s children with a solid education is the most important
investment we can make,” said Gerald Parks, Calera School Superintendent. “We’re proud of our district, and School Board Recognition Month is the time to say thank you and celebrate the accomplishments of our elected board members.”
In Calera, school board members must develop policies and make tough
decisions on complex educational and social issues impacting the entire community. They
bear responsibility for operating the school on an annual budget, educating 800 students, and providing support for 100 employees.
“School board members make critical decisions that affect Oklahoma children and oversee
billions in educational expenditures,” notes Parks. “They preserve the core of our democracy—public education.” We encourage everyone in our surrounding communities to tell your board members “ THANK YOU “ for the time and dedication that they provide for our students, and our schools.
The individuals serving as Board members for Calera Public School are:
Justin Boone - President
Monty Taylor - Vice President
Brent Sexton - Clerk
Mike Turner - Deputy Clerk
Kyle Nabors - Member
