January is School Board Recognition Month! Aurora Public Schools joins other districts across the state to honor the countless contributions of these locally elected advocates for Colorado school children and public schools.

School board members tackle a difficult job and shoulder enormous responsibilities. These men and women are elected to establish the policies that provide the framework for our district. The tireless work and many hours contributed by these citizens act as a crucial link between the community and the classroom. They participate in school functions; review reports, proposals and agendas; approve the district budget; and much more—all on their personal time and without compensation.

We encourage everyone to take a moment to express gratitude to these selfless individuals for their incredible leadership and undying dedication to our students, families, staff and community members.
