January Marks School Board Recognition Month


January is School Board Recognition Month. Carroll ISD joins the districts across the state to acknowledge the tremendous efforts of these outstanding community volunteers who commit their time to serve the district.

School board members are local volunteers elected by their constituents and receive no compensation for their work as public servants. They provide tireless dedication to public education without compensation. Due to the district transitioning to a new board room facility at the new Carroll Administration Center, located at 2400 North Carroll Avenue, a special recognition will be held at a meeting in February.

Board members contribute hundreds and hundreds of hours each year governing their districts. Whether crafting policies, hiring the Superintendent, listening to staff and student concerns, or recognizing outstanding programs, board members always keep their eyes on the goal of student achievement.

Their job is to establish a vision for the education program, design a structure to achieve that vision, assure schools are accountable to the community, and strongly advocate continuous improvement in student learning. The School Board has difficult decisions to make, but does so with considerations for Dragon students and their education first.

The Carroll ISD Board Members include:

Read Ballew, President
Sue Armstrong, Vice President
John Thane, Secretary
Craig Rothmeier
Erin Shoupp
Fred Stovall
Sherri Williams
