Thank a School Board Member  

Texans benefit every day from the tireless work and countless hours dedicated by a group of more than 7,300 men and women in communities across the state. These public servants are elected to serve by local constituents and receive no compensation for their efforts. These men and women are the school board members of Texas.

January is School Board Appreciation Month and Birdville ISD wants to take this opportunity to thank these local leaders for devoting time to support public education and serve our schools.

"It's more important than ever before that the public shows support for public education. Board members face critical challenges in their roles as advocates, and they will continue to stand strong and guard against anything that takes away from our children and undermines our public schools," said Darrell G. Brown, Birdville ISD superintendent.
