My viewpoint


As a four-term Pine River School Board member in the ‘70s, I was proud of the relationship between the board, administration and the teaching staff at the school.

We communicated often with staff members and the people who elected us. There was a genuine level of trust between the board, administration, staff and parents.

At that time, the board would receive recommendations from the superintendent, but the final decisions were made by the school board.
