The Yankton School District will join districts across the state to thank school board members for their leadership and service to our local school district and community during School Board Recognition Week, February 19-23.
“This week is a good opportunity to recognize our school board for their dedication to our children and our community,” said Dr. Wayne Kindle, Yankton School District Superintendent. The men and women serving Yankton School District and their years of service are Kathy Greeneway, 10 years, Matt Pietz, 6 years, Sarah Carda, 5 years, and Frani Kieffer, 4 years, and Terry Crandall, 2 years.
The board members who serve on the Yankton School Board are responsible for setting the vision and goals for the district. They work to provide a quality education for over 2700 Preschool-12 students and oversee an annual budget of approximately 30 million dollars. The school board also hires quality educators, sets district goals, adopts policies, and evaluates progress while keeping the interests of our students first.
“As elected leaders, school board members serve an important role. They are the link between the school and community,” said Superintendent Kindle. “They work tirelessly for our students, staff and community.”
During School Board Recognition Week, the Yankton School District invites students, staff and community members to take part in honoring its school board members. The school board will be recognized at its February 12 school board meeting.
