    Public education is more than just learning basic math, science, English and history; it’s a platform for students to reach their potential.  It inspires hope for a new generation and a successful future.

    Hazleton Area School District exists, in part, because individuals volunteer their time to make educated decisions about the issues facing public schools.  Every January we celebrate these everyday heroes – the nine elected School Directors who serve our students and educational system. 

    As your Superintendent of Schools, I have the distinct pleasure of working with this group of nine on a regular basis.  We share the same devotion, vision, and mission for the betterment of Hazleton Area School District.  Our collaborative and communicative working relationship is the cornerstone for success.  The same is true of all of the administration, faculty, and staff of this wonderful District.  

    Our School Directors make difficult, informed decisions for the betterment of our students.  They vote on multi-million dollar budgets, hire staff, support textbooks, review bus schedules, approve policy, among many other important decisions, all for the successes of our students.

    These dedicated volunteers reside in our community.  They are our friends, neighbors, community leaders, and parents at your school.

    During this month of recognition we ask you, the School Directors’ fellow community members, to show your appreciation for their service.  Please show your gratitude in some way for their time, effort, and dedication to public education’s advancement.  Thank them for advocating on behalf of our collective interests and making the difficult decisions.  Most importantly, thank them for being everyday heroes and making our students’ success their priority.

    Celebrate your School Directors!

    Yours in Education,

    Brian T. Uplinger

    Superintendent of Schools
