ELIZABETH—On Jan. 21, at the Elizabeth Board of Education meeting, Superintendent of Schools Pablo Muñoz will present a resolution to the Elizabeth Board of Education members in recognition of the nationally observed School Board Recognition Month. The resolution will commemorate the month and honor board members for their contributions to the Elizabeth Public School system.
The New Jersey and National School Boards Association, along with government officials throughout the United States, have proclaimed January to be School Board Recognition Month in order to give community members an opportunity to acknowledge the significant contributions made by local school board members.
Local school boards throughout the country strive to provide the resources necessary to meet the needs of all students, provide accountability to the public, communicate the needs of the school district and convey to school administrators the public’s expectations for the schools.
The Elizabeth Board of Education, which is comprised of President Francisco González, Vice President Carlos Trujillo, members Eddie Branquinho, Pastor Raúl Burgos, Armando Da Silva, Rafael J. Fajardo, Fernando Nazco, Marie Lynn Munn and Elcy Castillo-Ospino, receive no remuneration for their services. They advocate for students as they work with administrators, teachers and parents to foster and enhance the Elizabeth Public School system.
Superintendent of Schools Pablo Muñoz said, “On behalf of Elizabeth Public Schools, I would like to take this opportunity to thank our current and former Elizabeth Public School Board Members for their hard work and dedication. Their invaluable contributions of time, effort and support, have been instrumental in achieving the district’s goal of becoming one of the best school systems in the State of New Jersey.”
Board President Francisco González added, “I am proud to serve Elizabeth and urge all community members to work with us and our team members to improve our students’ education.”
