Rains ISD celebrates School Board Recognition Month this January.

January is School Board Recognition Month and Rains ISD is honored to celebrate its trustees for their dedication and commitment to the district's schools and students.

“Our school board members are selfless volunteers who spend long hours working to ensure all of our students have the opportunity to learn and grow,” Superintendent Jennifer Johnson said. “Celebrating School Board Recognition Month is one way to say thanks for all they do.”

Serving as a link between the community and classroom, school board members are elected to establish the policies that provide the framework for public schools. The Rains ISD board is responsible for approximately 1,700 students, over 300 employees and four campuses.

  “School boards are essential to a strong public education system,” Texas Association of School Boards (TASB) Executive Director Dan Troxell said. “They provide the local governance and oversight that makes it possible for school districts to serve students, including establishing a strategic plan, adopting policies, approving a budget and selecting and evaluating a superintendent. It’s fitting that we celebrate them in January as their leadership is key to the success of every school district in Texas.”
