THE WEST BRANCH-ROSE CITY AREA SCHOOLS
HONOR SCHOOL BOARD MEMBERS

January 17, 2022                           

The West Branch-Rose City Area Schools join with 537 local and 56 intermediate school districts across Michigan to celebrate January as School Board Recognition Month.

In another year full of challenges for public education, our school board members persevered through the adversity of 2021 to provide the best possible education for our students.  Celebrating School Board Recognition Month is one small way to express appreciation for all they do.

School board members represent the views and priorities of their community in the complex system of maintaining and running a district’s public schools.  They also reinforce the principle of local control over public education, which is an important, highly valued aspect of education in Michigan.

The school board’s main goal is to support student achievement.  To achieve that goal, the board focuses on the following needs:

  • Creating a vision for what parents and citizens want their school district to become and how to make student achievement the top priority.
  • Setting standards for what students must learn and be able to do.
  • Assessing whether schools achieve their goals and whether students are learning.
  • Accounting for the outcomes of decisions and by tracking progress and reporting results.
  • Aligning the use of the district’s human and financial resources.
  • Creating a safe and orderly climate where students can learn and teachers can teach.
  • Collaborating to solve common problems and to support common successes.
  • Focusing on continuous improvement by questioning, examining, revising, refining and revisiting issues related to student achievement.

Even though we are making a special effort during January to show appreciation for our school board members, we recognize their contributions reflect a year-round effort on their part.  No matter what challenges lie ahead for our district in 2022, our school board members will continue to govern; improving student achievement and providing exceptional education for all our community’s children.

The individuals serving WBRC and their years of service are:
School Board President, Scott Kartes, 7 years of service
Vice-President of School Board, Heather Kearns, 3 years of service
School Board Treasurer, Gary Miller, 3 years of service
School Board Secretary, Phil Stephens, 3 years of service
School Board Trustee, Curt Schaiberger, 5 years of service
School Board Trustee, Dr. Alan Withers, 1 year of service

We appreciate our school board!
