2023-2024 School Board Goals

Comply with all school district policies:  Comply with all district policies as adopted by the School Board, including but not limited to Policy 209, which states, Board members will: 

  • Recognize that my responsibility, exercised through the actions of the school board as a whole, is to see that the schools are properly run-not to run them myself
  • Make no disparaging remarks, in or out of school board meetings, about other members of the school board or their opinions
  • Provide support for the superintendent and employees of the school district so they may perform their proper functions at a professional level

  • Take no private action that will compromise the school board or administration

Participate in district-related events:  In addition to attending School Board meetings and Work Sessions, each School Board member will participate in at least three school / district-related events throughout the 2023-2024 School Year.  School Board members will share the information learned at a regular Business Meeting.  Progress on said goal will be evaluated in December and June.

Provide support for the Superintendent and fellow Board members:  Provide support for the superintendent and fellow Board members of the school district so they may perform their proper functions at a professional level.  Support will include asking questions in an attempt to fully understand issues before making a decision, assuming positive intent, representing all constituents equally, and making decisions that align with the District’s approved Core Beliefs, Mission, and Strategic Plan.

Core Values Advocacy

The Board will focus on community-wide concerns and values that best support student achievement rather than being overly influenced by special interests.  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 & 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.   


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.
