Killeen ISD will join 1,025 school districts throughout Texas to celebrate January as School Board Recognition Month, Superintendent Dr. John Craft announced Monday. The Trustees will be honored during the January 14th Board meeting.
Serving as a link between the community and classroom, school board members are elected to establish the policies that provide the framework for public schools. The KISD school board is responsible for over 45,000 students and 7,500 employees across 54 campuses.
Under their leadership the district has improved its TEA overall accountability score to 86, +10 points higher than the prior year, passed a monumental compensation package and attained a Transparency Star from the Texas State Comptroller for outstanding efforts in making financial information available to the public. The trustees also successfully commenced on $500 million worth of construction projects and opened Maude Moore Wood Elementary School. Two campuses were recognized as Texas Honor Roll Schools and Early College High School was named the model College and Career Readiness school for the state by Educate Texas.
“The district greatly appreciates the selfless service and commitment of each trustee as they work diligently to provide excellent education opportunities for all students. Celebrating School Board Recognition Month is one way to say thanks for all they do,” said Superintendent Craft.
