2021-2022 School Board Goals

  • Advocacy

    The Board will focus on community-wide concerns and values that best support student achievement rather than being overly influenced by special interestes.  Examples may include, but not be limited to revising policy to prioritize school district constituents during public comment time, working collaboratively with each other and the Superintendent to determine priorities, and to be actively engaged with local and state policymakers.     

    Values and Ethics of Leadership

    The Board will take full responsibility for its activity and behavior; spend its time on board work rather than staff work; provide for orientation and ongoing training for all board members; follow its established policies, including the chain-of-command, by directing people with concerns to the appropriate staff; set an example of respectful and civil leadership.  Success will be demonstrated through such things as engagement at Board meetings, ongoing work with the Superintendent, and through various communications with stakeholders.   

    Communication

    Demonstrates knowledge of cultivating positive relationships between and with the Superintendent and School Board members; and demonstrates an understanding of the importance of communication leadership between school district and its community.  Examples will include, but not be limited to communicating ideas, questions and concerns directly to the Board Chair and Superintendent, participating in work sessions, attending trainings and committee meetings (i.e., MSBA, NSBA, etc.), and providing regular committee updates to the Board and public.
