Board of Education

Bessemer Area School District

January 2018 is School Board Recognition Month—a great time to focus on the crucial role an elected board of trustees plays in our communities and schools. Plan now to show your school board members you appreciate their dedication and hard work. They are extraordinary people who voluntarily tackle the enormous job of governing school districts. Their actions and decisions affect the present and future lives of our children.

Recognizing board members for this commitment and sacrifice takes a combined effort on the part of all those they serve: administrators, school staff, students, and the community. Although showing appreciation should be a year-round process, taking advantage of the designated School Board Recognition Month in January assures that these important people receive some of the thanks they deserve. Bessemer School District’s Board members are:

Chair, Bob Berg; Vice-chair, Annette Lillie; Secretary, Beth Steiger; Treasurer, James Partanen; Directors, Eric Stanislawski, Dick Matrella, Anna Talaska

Not only do our members attend all board meeting, all member serve on several committees. 


Dave Radovich, Superintendent
