Concepts And Roles   

arrow Previous bar Next arrow

The Board of Education desires to represent the community and provide leadership in addressing community issues related to education. In order to identify community concerns and enlist support for the schools, the board shall establish two-way communication systems between schools and the community.

Schools, parents/guardians, community members, and local organization must continually collaborate as partners. It is a partnership in which community members, businesses, educators, and other school personnel perform their respective roles in view of the best interests of the schools and, most importantly, the students.

The board recognizes that schools are an important community resource and encourages community members to make appropriate use of school facilities. Community members are also encouraged to attend board meetings, participate in school activities, and take an interest in issues that affect the schools. Within district resources, the board and superintendent or designee shall keep community members well informed about district needs and accomplishments and shall ensure that they have opportunities to share in developing educational policies, programs, and evaluation processes.
