“Our school board members are true champions of education, tirelessly working behind the scenes to make critical decisions that impact the lives of students, teachers, and families,” ACS Superintendent Dr. Wayne Vickers said. “Their selfless service and unwavering commitment to the betterment of Alabaster City Schools deserve recognition and appreciation during School Board Member Recognition Month and beyond.”
A board of education is one of the most influential governing bodies in any community. The policies they approve, in many cases, affect thousands of students and employees. Their actions set the tone for all operational areas of a school system, from academics to athletics to the arts. The success of most communities rests in large part on the success of their school systems.
