School Board Recognition Week

The Port Byron School Board members were up early, holding a special meeting in the district office this morning!

Did you know that this week is School Board Recognition Week? Did you know that school boards are comprised of volunteers, who receive no compensation for their service? Their hugely important work is done only for the purposes of guiding and improving education for our students.

Some interesting facts: New York State currently has 691 school districts – each with its own school board – which means that there are over 5,000 school board members serving throughout the state. They oversee more than 2.6 million students (K-12), and $69 billion in budgeted spending.

We’d like to take this opportunity to thank our Board of Education for their tireless efforts, and their dedication toward providing the best educational environment possible for our students. Our members:

Melinda Quanbeck - President
Dr. Paul Ryan - Vice President
Christopher Recckio 
Roger Sevilla 
Peter V. Svitavsky
Joseph A. Verdi
Benjamin P. Vitale 
Janet Tamilio - District Clerk

Thank you all for everything that you do!
