(DEL VALLE, Texas) As part of School Board Recognition Month, Del Valle ISD (DVISD) ensured the nine board members that help guide the district were honored by the district and campuses throughout the month of January.  All 15 Del Valle ISD campuses enlisted the help of staff and students to create artwork, gifts of appreciation, posters, and signs that aligned with the theme, All-Star Team.  During the January 17, 2017 regular board meeting, these creations were presented to school board members, along with a certificate of appreciation, acknowledging the Board’s dedicated leadership in public education and continuing service to the children of the community.

Via the District’s website, mobile app, email, and Twitter, Del Valle ISD reached out to its community, inviting them to participate in School Board Recognition Month by learning more about the board’s role and contacting board members to thank them for their service.  All marquee signs in Del Valle ISD served as a public reminder about School Board Recognition month with messages of thanks to the Board being shared throughout the month.  District and campus Twitter feeds were used to support School Board Recognition Month with similar messages and photos.
