May is School Board Recognition Month and we would like to thank our school board members for their service to the Davenport Community School District and the community. Our locally elected Board members are entrusted with providing direction for the education of students in our district. The State of Iowa has 333 school districts with 5 to 7-member non-salaried boards. Local Boards allow our K-12 public schools to be flexible and responsive to local community needs. Public schools are focused on increasing student achievement while remaining good fiscal stewardship of the public’s investment in education. We are grateful for your dedication and hard work.
