May is School Board Recognition Month, sponsored by the Iowa Association of School Boards, to celebrate the contributions of board members to Iowa public education. The Montezuma School is celebrating the work of school board members, who are Developing Iowa’s Future Together, in partnership with the school community, families, and citizens.
“School board members serve to make a difference for students and help ensure they have the building blocks needed for future success. They devote their time to monthly meetings, reviewing board materials, communicating with citizens and parents, exploring learning opportunities, and attending school functions and activities,” said Rich Schulte, Superintendent.
The Montezuma School Board is charged with looking beyond the horizon for our school district and our students. They oversee the budget, develop policies, set the culture for the district, and make decisions that impact the entire community to construct a solid foundation toward their commitment to student achievement. Each year they reexamine this foundation, carefully connecting each piece to make practical, concrete decisions in the present with the never-ending goal of developing Iowa’s future teachers, doctors, business leaders—and school board members!
