    School Board Appreciation Week Set for Jan. 20-26, 2019 McMinnville, TN - January 20-26, 2019 is School Board Appreciation Week in Tennessee. This week helps build awareness and understanding of the vital functions our locally elected boards of education play in our community. The Warren County School District is joining public school districts from across the state to celebrate School Board Appreciation Week and honor local board members for their commitment to Warren County and its children. “Our school system is a vital part of our community, and these men and women devote countless hours to making sure our schools are helping every child,” Bobby Cox, Director of Schools said. “Warren County School Board members spend countless hours studying the issues and regulations and make the tough decisions when called upon to ensure the type of accountability people expect.” Cox continued to say the key work of school boards is to: • Create a vision and a strategic plan for what the community wants the school district to be and for making student achievement the top priority; • Ensure progress is measured to be sure the district’s strategic plan goals are achieved and students are learning at expected levels; • Create a safe, orderly climate where students can learn and teachers can teach; • Form partnerships with others in the community to solve common problems; and • Focus attention on the need for continuous improvement by questioning, refining and revisiting issues related to student achievement. “Our local school board shapes the future of education in Warren County by influencing the high-quality of education that our children and youth receive. The Warren County School Board shows its commitment to educational excellence and equity – and for that we are very grateful for their service.” The members serving our district on the Warren County School board are: • Teddy Jones, Chair • Tanya Bess, Vice-Chair • Helen Martin • James Bennett • Bill Zechman • Sue Anderson
