Celebrate School Board Recognition Month 

Each January, we honor the community volunteers who serve on their local school boards. The 2023 School Board Recognition theme is: Forward, Together

As Texas public schools continue to deal with the challenges of the past few years, school boards will lead the way. However, schools and communities succeed when everyone works together for a brighter future — parents, teachers, students, and school leadership. 





School Board Recognition Month planning kit

Each year, TASB prepares a School Board Recognition Month planning kit to help districts recognize their local trustees. The kit is full of ideas for honoring board members and letting the community know about their many contributions.

Our online planning kit includes:

  • Sample materials, like a news release and proclamation
  • Artwork to post on social media, district websites, and in printed materials
  • Customizable certificates for trustees
  • And more!

Gov. Abbott proclaims January School Board Recognition Month

January is officially School Board Recognition Month in the state of Texas! Gov. Abbott issued a proclamation stating, "To catch a glimpse of the Texas of tomorrow, we need only look into the classrooms of today." The proclamation also acknowledged the importance of locally-elected boards. "...Individual schools and districts are answerable to the people through elected school boards. These boards set a vision for their district based on students' needs and community values."
