Among their many accomplishments in the past year are the following highlights:
- opening of the Jenison Public Schools Center for the Arts
- settling a two year master agreement with our three employee groups
- hiring approximately forty new professionals
Too often the personal sacrifices school board members routinely make are forgotten. The time spent in board meetings represents just a small fraction of the hours they spend helping lead our district. Their efforts to help ALL children succeed by improving teaching and learning in our district are truly appreciated.
“I have been very blessed to have the opportunity to work with such gifted, dedicated, and compassionate men and women who serve on the Board of Jenison Public Schools. The strength of their leadership and determination that Jenison Public Schools excel in everything that we do continues to set the bar high for all of us who serve the children and parents of our school district. Our Board of Education members are committed to insure that all decisions always focus on what is best for the children who attend Jenison Public Schools. As we celebrate School Board Education month, it is important that everyone take the time to thank our board members who work so diligently on behalf of Jenison Public Schools.” — Tom TenBrink
Thank you, Board of Education, for your passion and dedication to the families of our district. We honor you, this month and all year long!
You can join the School Board at their next meeting on Monday, January 13 at 7:30pm in the Jenison Center for the Arts Board Room. As always, their meetings are open to the public.
