Board members share Ray-Pec successes

Ray-Pec School Board members attended the Missouri School Boards' Association annual conference Sept. 29 to Oct. 2 at Osage Beach. At the conference, three Board members presented sessions.

Board Member Ruth Johnson presented with Belton School Board Member Jerry Miller on the topic: "Small Districts, Large Legislative Power." They described how the public school districts in Cass County came together under the umbrella of Cass County Kids First to support legislative action that enhances the quality of education in the county. Collectively, Cass County Kids First represents more than 18,000 students.

Board President Kim York and Board Member Ryan Wescoat were part of a panel presentation about the Outstanding Board of Education award. Ray-Pec received the award in the area of School Finance Resources.

The conference included hundreds of attendees, nationally known speakers, more than 100 breakout sessions, a trade show and awards banquet.

MSBA is a not-for profit organization that helps local school boards succeed by providing board member training, policy support, legal assistance, superintendent search guidance, and other services.

During the event school board members met with Missouri’s congressional delegation and staff members to discuss federal education issues that have an impact on local school districts throughout Missouri. Board members discussed a variety of issues with lawmakers including the implementation of the Every Student Succeeds Act and the reauthorization of the Perkins Career and Technical Education Act, the federal law that sets policy and establishes funding for vocational training programs at middle and high schools. 

In this picture, some board members meet with Congresswoman Vicky Hartzler, who represents Missouri's 4th District.

The Missouri School Boards’ Association sponsors the annual trip to Washington, D.C. to provide Missouri school board members the opportunity to take an active role in advocating for issues important to Missouri’s public schools.
