“In January, we pause to salute a group of nine people who spend dozens of hours each month voluntarily leading our schools and making difficult decisions – they are the school directors.” The Pennsylvania School Boards Association (PSBA) has proclaimed January as School Director Recognition Month.
Solanco School Board members, front row: Kurt Kreider, Paul Plechner (president), Brian Musser (vice president), Monica Miller (secretary, non-voting). Back row: Byron Byron Graybeal, Craig Chubb, Jane Ausel, Charles “Chip” Roten, Levi Kauffman, Justin Kreider (treasurer).
School board members are responsible for very important decisions including school budgets, personnel matters, curriculum, and the maintenance of school facilities. They are volunteers; they are not paid for the remarkable amount of time, effort and energy they provide in service to students, parents, school staff and our entire community.
