This week, the Washington Post’s “Answer Sheet” blog features a commentary by Idette B. Groff, a member of the Conestoga Valley, Penn., school board and a member of the Pennsylvania School Boards Association’s Board of Directors. Groff wrote about ways her school board revamped and expanded its communications plans to ensure all parents were involved in issues such as the budget process.
The column is the latest in a series of entries by school board members from across the country, including:
“The problem school boards have with the public,” by Michael Rochholz, board president of the Schoolcraft Community Schools in Schoolcraft, Mich. and member of the Michigan Association of School Boards.
“Are school boards part of the problem or the solution?” by Anne M. Byrne, a member of the New York’s Nanuet school board and of NSBA’s Board of Directors.
“Should children have to compete for their education?” by Mary Fertakis, a member of Washington’s Tukwila School District Board of Directors and President-elect of the Washington State School Directors’ Association.
