School Board Recognition

Creswell School District joins the other 196 school districts throughout Oregon to celebrate January as School Board Recognition Month.

Our school board members spend countless hours of unpaid time working to provide the best possible education for our students. They also serve as the corporate board of directors for our community’s largest employer. Celebrating School Board Recognition Month is one way to say thanks for all they do.

Too often the efforts of school board members go unrecognized. We’d like to take an extra moment to recognize Tim Rogers and Paul Randall for their significant levels of achievement in leadership and development. This fall, Mr. Rogers received a platinum award for completing coursework through the Oregon School Boards Association’s (OSBA) Leadership Institute. Mr. Randall received a bronze award for his ongoing professional development efforts.

Our school board members are committed to improving student achievement and to fighting for the best for all of our students, Thank you board members for your dedication to Creswell students, and congratulations Mr. Rogers and Mr. Randall!

Creswell School Board member among Leadership Oregon graduates

Timothy Rogers, Creswell School Board member, was among 20 local school board members who graduated May 5th with skills gained from the Oregon School Boards Association’s Leadership Oregon program. By completing this leadership program, Director Rogers obtained OSBA’s highest level of professional development recognition – Platinum Level.

The participants completed four sessions of 1½ days each to graduate, learning leadership skills and joining a support network of education leaders from across the state. The sessions consisted of advanced leadership, advocacy and engagement, key issues, and effective communications.

The program is offered at no charge once every two years. OSBA, based in Salem, represents nearly 1,400 local board members of school districts, charter schools, education service districts and community colleges statewide.
