Zavalla ISD celebrates School Board Recognition Month this January


(Zavalla, Texas)– January is School Board Recognition Month and Zavalla ISD is honored to celebrate its trustees for their dedication and commitment to the district’s schools and students.


“Our school board members are selfless volunteers who spend long hours working to ensure all of our students have the opportunity to learn and grow,” Superintendent Dr. Zach Crawford said. “Celebrating School Board Recognition Month is one way to say thanks for all they do.”


“School boards are essential to a strong public education system,” Texas Association of School Boards (TASB) Executive Director Dan Troxell said. “They provide the local governance and oversight that makes it possible for school districts to serve students, including establishing a strategic plan, adopting policies, approving a budget and selecting and evaluating a superintendent. It’s fitting that we celebrate them in January as their leadership is key to the success of every school district in Texas.”



Board members serving Zavalla ISD are: James Barge, Joe Bridges, Chris Wade, Chris Runnels, Shannon Cryer, Regan Rash, Amber Grimes.
