School Board Appreciation: January is School Board Recognition month! I hope you will join me in expressing appreciation for the Rockdale School Board for their dedication and hard work. Serving as a trustee is a tremendous undertaking and the RISD Board of Trustees is an extraordinary group. Their commitment to students, parents, teachers, programs, and schools has a significant positive impact on the community and directly relates to the current and future successes of Rockdale schools. Thank you RISD Board of Trustees for all you do!
