School Board Recognition Month
January is School Board Recognition Month and Bandera ISD is joining other districts across the state to thank these local leaders for their dedication and willingness to serve as advocates for our children and public schools. "Even though we are making a special effort in January to show appreciation to our board members, we realize their many contributions reflect a year-round commitment," said Regina Howell, BISD Superintendent.
