    Board Members act as liaisons to our schools.  This system helps facilitate communication between the Board and each school.  The Board welcomes dialogue with the community.

    The role of the Board covers four broad areas of responsibility:

    • Establishing a vision for the District
    • Establishing an effective and efficient organizational structure
    • Ensuring accountability
    • Advocating on behalf of children and public education

    In order to fulfill these responsibilities, the Board

    • selects and evaluates the superintendent
    • sets policy for hiring of personnel
    • adopts and evaluates policies
    • adopts and monitors curriculum
    • adopts budgets and monitors the District's fiscal accountability for the long term
    • negotiates and adopts collective bargaining agreements
    • creates an environment that promotes excellence and enhanced communication among our various constituencies.
