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. The theme of this year’s School Board Recognition Month is Forward, Together, which highlights the collaboration among school leadership, teachers, and parents on behalf of students. 

“Recognizing the efforts of our volunteer school board is so important because of all the hard work trustees put into making our district a success,” Superintendent Jennifer Johnson said. “Celebrating School Board Recognition Month is one way to say thanks for all they do.”

Dan Troxell, executive director of the Texas Association of School Boards, applauded the efforts of trustees in providing leadership and good governance so that school districts can focus on educating the 5.4 million public schoolchildren in their care.

 “Texas school boards are critical to the success of students and the future of Texas,” Troxell said. “Boards lead their districts in the right direction, providing oversight, setting goals, overseeing the budget, and selecting and evaluating the superintendent. These volunteers serve for the betterment of their local schools and communities.”

The Rains ISD board is responsible for approximately 1,750 students, over 300 employees and four campuses. You can meet the Rains ISD Board of Trustees HERE, or select the "School Board" drop down menu at to learn more.
