Saldivar: School trustees play vital role

January 17, 2013

Consider the school board member — he or she is responsible for many vital decisions concerning your child's education, spends who knows how many hours getting up to speed on a labyrinth of local, state and federal regulations and probably at least that long explaining the district's position on issues to parents and other interested observers.

By the way, they don't get paid for their trouble, either.

Seems like giving them a special month is the least we can do.
