VASBO President's Message
Greetings! The 2013-2014 year will be VASBO’s 49th year of service to its members. Appreciation is extended to all current and past members who have served this organization in multiple ways over multiple years. Your work building this association has been fruitful and continues to benefit current members.
The 2013-2014 VASBO management team strives to do its part to make a difference. VASBO wants to be engaged at all levels –local, state, and national – and on professional and personal levels. Strong relationships at each level will increase the opportunities for VASBO to be at the table doing our part for public education and the teachers and students of the Commonwealth.
It is a privilege to serve in public education – an institution rooted in America’s history. From the early forms of apprenticeships accompanied by a mandate to teach reading and writing, to international student competitions and virtual learning, the accomplishments of public education have been rewarding. Public education has been reinvented repeatedly in some ways, yet not in other ways. Challenges exist. They always will. Currently, the efforts of public educators and division staff are challenged by negative shifts in class sizes, parental involvement, funding, attitude toward public education, student health, and poverty levels. We struggle to obtain and maintain appropriate technology. We struggle with the mandates of federal legislation. We cobble together opportunities for professional growth for our teachers and staff. We search for ways to engage our communities. We piece together resources to use our buildings beyond capacity or useful life. We serve the public, searching daily for resources and doing our part to make a difference. Public education is a wise investment. VASBO strives to protect it and advocate for it.
Lisa Frye, VASBO President
