The New York State School Boards Association recognizes October 23-27 as School Board Recognition Week. This is a time to promote awareness and understanding of the important work performed by school board members. South Country Central School District is joining all public school districts across the state to celebrate School Board Recognition Week to honor local board members for their commitment to South Country and its children.

“It takes strong schools to build a strong community, and these men and women devote countless hours to making sure our schools are helping every child learn at a higher level,” Superintendent Dr. Joseph Giani said. “They make the tough decisions every month and spend many hours studying education issues and regulations in order to provide the kind of accountability our citizens expect.”

Dr. Giani said the key work of school boards is to raise student achievement by:
Creating a shared vision for the future of education
Setting the direction of the school district to achieve the highest student performance
Providing accountability for student achievement results
Developing a budget that aligns district resources to improve achievement
Supporting a healthy school district culture in which to work and to learn
And much more!
“School board members give the South Country citizens a voice in education decision making.” Dr. Giani said.

The members serving our district are as follows: 
Cheryl A. Felice, President
Regina Hunt, Vice President
Lisa Di Santo
Dr. Anthony Griffin
Carol Malin
Jack Nix
Chris Picini

South Country Central School District will recognize school board members with a dinner and presentation on October 25, 2017, hosted by Brookhaven Elementary School students and staff.
