This month is School Board Recognition Month, allowing BCPS to celebrate our school board members for their work and dedication to our district. Like many other things, the role of the school board member has become increasingly complex due to the complications of navigating a pandemic, and our members deserve to be recognized for the difficult decisions they have had to regularly make in the face of this crisis.
“Members of the Bullitt County Board of Education are responsible for making decisions aimed at ensuring that every child in their district has a chance to be successful, both in school and in life,” says Ronnie Holmes, President of the Kentucky School Boards Association and Chairman of the Graves County School Board. “To do that, members must oversee a $175-million budget, keep up with changing education laws and policies, and spend hours on professional learning and state-mandated training.”
“The voters in Bullitt County have elected these local leaders, who work to give every child in every classroom access to high quality teaching and learning,” states Dr. Jesse Bacon, Superintendent. “At a time when state and federal funding continues to shrink, our school board members haven’t flinched in the face of the challenges or shied away from their responsibilities. Our community can be very proud of this team of board members, and I’m proud to be their partner in striving for education excellence for our students.”
