During its first meeting of 2013, the Mason City Schools’ Board of Education unanimously re-appointed Kevin Wise as President, and Marianne Culbertson as Vice-President. Reorganization takes place each year, as required by the Ohio Revised Code. 

“I truly appreciate this board’s support, and look forward to a great 2013," said Wise. "Our district is making a lot of structural transitions. On behalf of the entire board, we want to thank all those people who are making these changes go smoothly. I am very confident in our administration’s leadership and in our staff. We have the ability to take on challenges that are very complex and to tackle those challenges in a way that is very effective.

The Board also re-appointed Courtney Allen as its Student Achievement Liaison, and Matt Steele as its Legislative Liaison.

The Board established its 2013 meeting dates: January 22, February 26, March 12, April 23, May 28, June 11, June 25, July 30, August 13, August 27, September 10, September 24, October 8, October 22, November 12, December 17 and January 7, 2014 organizational.  All meetings will be held at 7:00 pm in the Mason High School Harvard Room.

January is School Board Appreciation Month

Boards of education are a mature and tested institution in Ohio. School board members make policy; approve contracts with employees; choose curriculum; adopt budgets; and select a superintendent and treasurer to administer the district. They do all these tasks with the emphasis on what’s best for the children they serve. Being an effective school board member is no easy task, particularly in today’s climate of change and challenge. To face these demands of governing our public schools, they give countless hours of personal time.

On January 22, Mason City Schools students will recognize School Board Appreciation Month during a special presentation at the 7:00 board meeting.
