Celebrate School Board Recognition Month in January 2021

School Board Recognition Month LogoGovernor Greg Abbott declared January 2021 as School Board Recognition Month as a tribute to the hard-working school board members who play such an important role in our communities and schools. Although showing appreciation should be a year-round process, taking advantage of the designated month ensures that these important people receive some of the thanks they deserve. Read the governor's proclamation to learn more.

2021 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 Navigating to Success, is full of ideas for honoring board members and letting the community know about their many contributions. The 2021 planning kit is available online. The mailed kits with printed certificates were mailed directly to district superintendents in October.

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
