Board Development   

arrow Previous bar Next arrow

Citizens elected to the Board of Trustees are entrusted with the responsibility of governing district schools. The Board recognizes that its members need training that helps them understand their responsibilities, stay abreast of new developments in education, and develop Boardsmanship skills.

All Board members may attend conferences for the purpose of Board development. Board business shall not be discussed at conferences.

(cf. 9230 - Orientation)

(cf. 9320 - Meetings and Notices)

Board members shall report to the Board, orally or in writing, as soon as possible on the in-service activities they attend.

In developing an individual Board member's training plan for any given year, Board members wishing to attend major conferences (two days or longer) must place on a Board agenda the request for the Board's consideration. Representation to out-of-state conferences will be rotated between Board members. When in-state conferences occur, all Board members may attend.

Funds for Board development shall be budgeted annually for each Board member.

(cf. 9250 - Remuneration, Reimbursement, and Other Benefits)
