Whereas, public schools are the foundations of neighborhoods and communities, bringing together adults and children, educators and volunteers, business leaders, and elected officials in a common enterprise.

THEREFORE, BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED that we, the Pueblo City Schools Board of Education does proclaim November 13-17, 2017 as the 96th annual observance of American Education week.
