TWIN FALLS, Idaho (KMVT/KSVT) — January is school board appreciation month and the Twin Falls School District wants those who volunteer to be recognized.
Twin Falls School District Superintendent Brady Dickinson.
The Twin Falls School District board is made up of five individuals who volunteered and were elected into their roles.
The board's primary responsibilities is to make decisions for the school district relating to policies, curriculum and procedures.
The board's major responsibility is over the district's budget.
“Lots of people step forward in our community to volunteer and we're just really appreciative of all of the volunteers in the district,” said Superintendent Brady Dickinson. “But for the school board in particular because it is kind of a big job. They're serving the community, they're not being paid for their time or service. We're really lucky here in Twin Falls because we have people who are truly dedicated and on the school board because they care about kids."
The best way to get involved and potentially finding yourself in a seat on the board, the first step is to volunteer and then talk to the current representative of the school zone they live in.
