Get on Board! Become a voice for Oregon Students! La Grande School Board Member, Robin Maille shares what it means to be a School Board member. "School board work is important to me because I get to see the results of our decisions over time. All decisions are meant to support kids as they navigate learning in our schools-whether it is related to policy, budget, curriculum, social-emotional support or facility improvement. It is important to support and work with the superintendent and other board members, not against them. We make decisions as a group, through active listening and patience. Expect to invest time in learning about the schools and being part of the committees to explore options and plan for the future." www.getonboardoregon.org
