Iowa School Board Recognition Week

Iowa School Board Recognition Week is observed May 6-12, 2012. Riverside board members Greg Hansen, Murray Fenn, Mark Beedle, Phil Reed, Jeff Buckingham, Matt Bowen and Dan Ives give their time to serve the patrons and students of the district. Their vision is to engage the community in setting the course to guide local education, keeping student achievement as the primary focus. The school board employs a superintendent, adopts policies and plans, and ensures that human and financial resources are allocated to accomplish the vision. The board monitors student achievement, evaluates progress toward district goals and reports progress to the community. The school board serves as the key advocate on behalf of students and public education and builds partnerships with others to support student learning. Iowa school board members are volunteer elected officials who donate their time to school board service. Each week, Iowa school board members donate thousands of hours in service to Iowa students.
Please join Riverside staff and students in saying “THANKS” to the gentlemen currently serving on our board.
