Each year in October, the Central Parent Council (CPC) proudly recognizes the Board of Education for National School Board Recognition month, an opportunity to raise community awareness and understanding about the crucial role school board members have within a school district. It is a time to say thank you and share appreciation for the hard work, devotion and commitment school board members put to task voluntarily all year long to ensure all students succeed.
