January is School Board Recognition Month, and Carroll ISD is using this month to celebrate the school board and focus on the crucial role an elected board of trustees plays in the school district. Carroll ISD is joining districts across the state to acknowledge the tremendous efforts of these outstanding community volunteers who commit their time to serve the district. The Carroll School Board of Trustees will be honored with a special presentation at the board meeting on Monday, January 22, as students and staff show their appreciation for the board’s hard work on behalf of Carroll ISD.
The men and women of the Carroll School Board certainly have a vested interest in seeing that the district’s tradition of excellence continues. Trustees are elected to individual terms and serve in at-large positions that are staggered by annual elections. Trustees meet twice monthly to discuss and act on school business, but are often seen daily in schools attending performances, sports competitions, awards ceremonies, art shows, parent meetings, staff receptions and special events.
Board officers for Carroll ISD include President Sheri Mills, Vice President Michelle Moore and Secretary Danny Gilpin. Trustees include Read Ballew, Todd Carlton, Bradley Taylor and Dave Almand. In addition to their servant leadership in CISD, the Trustees support their community through involvement in the Carroll Education Foundation, Kiwanis, Grace, Southlake Chamber of Commerce, and more. In addition, each Trustee participates on at least one Board advisory committee.
Each of these Trustees brings a unique and crucial perspective to the Board, working together to support the students and staff of Carroll Independent School District.
