School Board Recognized for Service

News Release


January 9, 2017



Calico Rock School District joins districts across the state to celebrate School Board Member Recognition Month in January. More than 1500 Arkansas school board members are being honored for their service and dedication to public education.

Our board members assume a crucial role in representing our students and advocating for public education.  We are very proud of our members, and Arkansas School Board Recognition Month is a great time to recognize them and celebrate their accomplishments. 

The members serving on the Calico Rock School Board are Rex Whitfield, Ryan Killian, Shad McClain, Patty Conyers and Chris Brandon.

On January 11, 2017 the Student Council, faculty, staff and the administration will honor board members with a special luncheon to show our gratitude for their service to the Calico Rock School District.

As publicly elected school leaders, Arkansas school board members set policy for their respective districts. Under state law, they are empowered to hire the superintendent, oversee district finances, approve the budget, and determine the vision and mission of the district. School boards must also approve the curriculum and ensure the district maintains adequate facilities for teaching and learning.

On behalf of the students, faculty, staff and administration it is my honor to express our gratitude to the Calico Rock Board of Education.


Jerry Skidmore, Superintendent
