Board director steps down

Arlington School Board Director steps down after years of service to students
Mike RayDuring the Nov. 27 Arlington Public Schools Board of Directors meeting, director Mike Ray was recognized for his four years of service to students.

Ray joined the school board in November 2019. Prior to joining the board, he served on the district’s Advisory Council for Education (ACE) and the Facilities Advisory Committee.

“During COVID, Mike pushed hard to get students back into schools as quickly as possible,” said Arlington Public Schools Superintendent, Dr. Chrys Sweeting. “As a result, we were one of the first districts in the area to provide in-person instruction to students once it was safe to do so. He has always been an advocate for and supporter of student success in Arlington.”
