Lexington County School District One joins school districts throughout the state and nation to celebrate School Board Recognition Month in January. This month, South Carolina schools and communities will recognize more than 600 locally-elected and appointed school board members for their service and dedication to public education.
As a part of School Board Recognition Month, the Lexington District One Board of Trustees participated in an official signing of the South Carolina School Board Member Ethical Principles during their meeting on Jan. 19. By signing the principles, school board members publicly vowed to uphold effective governance principles and pledged to improve public education in their community.
“Join me in honoring the year-round commitment that our school board members make to our district and the community,” said Dr. Gregory Little, Superintendent. “They advocate for quality schools and equitable public education across the district and make sure that each child has the same opportunity for success no matter where they live in our district.”
In Lexington District One, school board members develop policies and make tough decisions on complex educational and social issues impacting the entire community. They bear responsibility for more than 27,000 students and 4,000 employees, as well as 31 schools and numerous offices.
The Lexington District One Board of Trustees is made up of Board Chair Anne Marie Green, Board Vice Chair Dr. Brent M. Powers, Board Secretary Michael E. Anderson, Jada B. Garris, Dr. R. Kyle Guyton, Kathryn W. Henson and Timothy F. Oswald.
