  • Barb Fuller shares her favorite parts of serving of the Board of Education:


    "Serving on the Wichita School Board is very gratifying for me.  Good News items are always on the agenda to recognize students and educators. Recent examples are:


    • Ten schools received the Let’s Move Active Schools National Award
    • South High received the KSDE Standard of Excellence in School Counseling Award.
    • South High counselors are members of the first school counseling program in Kansas and earned the highest distinction as counselors.


    I recently participated in the Lights On After School event at the WSU Metroplex. The 21st Century After School A.R.T.S. program sponsored this event.


    The Board will soon celebrate scholarships received by high school students for their future.


    I always look forward to the Education presentation.  A recent presentation was on the 2016 Initiatives for Curriculum and Instruction. This was based on student data that included the state assessments. 


    I am blessed to serve with the current Board members who share their dedication, commitment, and tireless efforts.  I am immensely proud to be a part of USD 259!"
