Thank you JOC Members - Pennsylvania School Boards Association School Director Recognition Month
Pennsylvania School Board recognized January as School Director Recognition Month In honor of school boards’ commitment to our students, schools, and communities.
Our school directors are faithful public servants!. Each month, they devote countless hours to board businesses’ challenging and complex responsibilities, including voting on budgets, adopting policy, and conducting comprehensive planning with no monetary pay.
Our nine Joint Operating Committee Members play a vital part in our school’s administrative team, making informed decisions that lead public schools and provide opportunities for every student to succeed. We are very fortunate to have such a supportive and visionary board.

Welding Field Trip a Huge Success
We saw multiple welding processes used, including self-shielded flux core welding and carbon air arc gouging. The students had never been exposed to welding with a ceramic backing before, and the crew from Caroll Engineering was kind enough to give them some materials to practice with. Students also observed professional welders going back up the water tower and utilizing fall harnesses. In addition, students made valuable industry contacts.
Comments from our students included “The field trip solidified the idea that welding was going to be his career” and “best field trip ever!
