SOUTH PLAINFIELD, NJ – Board of Education member Debbie Boyle recently beat out five other candidates running to become president of the Middlesex County School Boards Association, a group that works for better schools throughout the county and is part of a larger organization that does the same throughout the state.
Boyle will serve as the county president for two years, with her term ending in January 2016. When asked about her goals, she said she’s interested in expanding the number of learning opportunities for board members.
“My goals are to host more legal, advocacy, student-achievement, special-education, and leadership programs and to have all board members attend these informative programs” Boyle said. “I would also like to host programs with other counties.”
Boyle also just became certified as a “master board member” by the New Jersey School Boards Association. School board members throughout the state are eligible to earn the designation by attending a variety of training sessions and meeting other requirements set by the association. Before becoming a master board member, Boyle was a certified board member, which is the first step in the association’s certification process.
