Celebrate School Board Recognition Month in January 2020

School Board Recognition Month LogoGovernor Greg Abbott has declared January 2020 School Board Recognition Month to honor the more than 7,200 locally elected trustees in Texas.

January is a great time to celebrate your hard-working school board members and educate the public about the important role that a school board plays in our communities and schools. Although showing appreciation should be a year-round process, taking advantage of the designated School Board Recognition Month assures that these important people receive some of the thanks they deserve.


2020 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, centered on the theme Launching the Next Generation, is full of ideas for honoring board members and letting the community know about their many contributions. The 2020 planning kit is now available online! The mailed kits with printed certificates will be mailed directly to district superintendents in early November.

Check out this year's online kit, which 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!

Thank you, trustees
