District honors BOE members during recognition week

  • The New York State School Boards Association recognizes October 19-23 as School Board Recognition Week. This is a time to promote awareness and understanding of the important work performed by school board members. General Brown Central School District is joining all public school districts across the state to celebrate School Board Recognition Week to honor our local board members for their commitment to General Brown and its children.

     “It takes strong schools to build a strong community, and these men and women devote countless hours making sure our schools are helping every child learn at General Brown,” Superintendent Barbara J. Case said. “They make the tough decisions every month and spend many hours studying education issues and regulations, ensuring that we remain focused on the goals of the Strategic Plan 2019-2022.”

    Superintendent Case said the key work of school boards is to raise student achievement by:

    • Creating a shared vision for the future of education
    • Setting the direction of the school district to achieve the highest student performance
    • Providing accountability for student achievement results
    • Developing a budget that aligns district resources to improve achievement
    • Supporting a healthy school district culture in which to work and to learn
    • And much more!

     “School board members give the General Brown community a voice in education decision making, and now more than ever, schools need advocates. We thank the members of the Board of Education for their ongoing commitment to the students, families, employees, and community of the General Brown Central School District.”

    The members serving our district and their years of service completed are as follows: President Kelly Milkowich, 2 years; Vice President Sandra Young Klindt, 7 years; Natalie Hurley, 3 years; Daniel Dupee II, 8 years; Tiffany Orcesi, 1 year; Jamie Lee, 7 years; and Scott Lytle, in first year.
