Recognizing School Board members


February 20, 2019

The Ipswich Public School District will join districts across the state this week to thank school board members for their leadership and service to the local school district and community, during South Dakota School Board Recognition Week from February 18-22.

During School Board Recognition Week, the Ipswich Public School District invites students, staff and community members to take part in thanking its school board members. Chairman Justin Davis, Vice Chairman Todd Hettich, Kathy Bauer, Carol Pond and Tadd Thorson work tirelessly to provide the best opportunities for local students, staff and community. As elected leaders, school board members serve as the link between the school and community members and we appreciate all of the time and effort they expend for the staff and students of the Ipswich District.

School board membership is one of the most personally demanding forms of public service. Members of the school board spend countless hours preparing for and participating in their monthly meetings. They also devote a great deal of time to studying education issues and laws and listening to the concerns of parents and teachers. In fact, they never are completely “off the job” as board members.

“It’s more important than ever before that the public support public education so that today’s students are prepared to be productive citizens and the leaders of tomorrow. Please take a moment and tell school board members ‘thanks for caring about our children and giving so much to our community.’ Let them know we support them and that their dedicated service is recognized and truly appreciated,” Superintendent Trent Osborne said.
