School Board FAQ

 

Q: How do I get an item on the agenda?

A: Contact the Superintendent or the Board Chairman at least seven working days prior to the next regularly scheduled board meeting.


Q: Is there a time limit for patrons addressing the Board?

A: There is no time limit, but we ask that you try and keep your comments as brief as possible · around three minutes.


Q: I am having a problem with my child's teacher. Can I call the Board?

A: Yes, but your Trustee will refer you back to the building principal or a district administrator. It is our policy to try and resolve issues at the community level.


Q: Does the Board get involved in the day-to-day operations of schools?

A: Yes and no. The Board sets the policies that guide daily operations, but principals and district administrators manage day-to-day operations.


Q: I'd like to serve on a district committee to help guide the Board. What should I do?

A: Each year the school board appoints citizens from their zone to serve on a variety of committees. Contract your Trustee or the Clerk of the Board at 922-1000 if you would like to serve on a district committee.


Q: I can't attend Board meetings but would like to share my ideas and opinions. What can I do?

A: Attending a Board meeting is just one of the ways you can get involved. You can call the District Office and leave a message for the Board, send an e-mail message, write a letter, or call your Trustee.

School Board Information

 

The Kuna School Board is composed of five citizens, each representing a different geographic region of the district. They serve without pay in overlapping terms of four years.

 

Regular Meetings

The Kuna School Board of Trustees meets on the second Tuesday of every month in the Support Services Building Conference Room located at 711 E. Porter Road, Kuna, at 6:30 p.m.. Special meetings are also called when necessary. All meetings are open to the public.

State law permits the Board to go into executive session to discuss student, personnel, negotiations, property, or legal matters. No vote on any item may be taken in executive session.

Board agendas are posted at the District Office at least 48 hours before a regular meeting and 24 hours before a special meeting. Local news media are notified of every meeting.

 

Addressing the Board

meeting_microphoneMeetings of the Board of Trustees follow a standard, published agenda. The Chairman of the Board presides at all meetings. Patrons who wish to comment on agenda items may do so by signing the Public Comment Sheet located at the entrance to the meeting room.

Each board meeting follows the same format: approval of the minutes, review and approval of the consent agenda, discussion and action on special reports, old business, new business, and the Superintendent's report.

When appearing before the Board, please state your name, address, and the item on the agenda you wish to discuss. Public comment on items before the Board is encouraged. The Board's function is decision-making and the sentiments of the patrons assist in making those decisions.

 

Privacy Law and Employees' Rights

The rights of employees, students and others are protected by various laws and policies. At a public meeting of the Board of Trustees, no person shall orally initiate charges or complaints against students or individual employees of the district.

All complaints, concerns, or challenges regarding a specific school or individual should be registered first at the building level with the appropriate teacher or principal. Experience has shown that this is the best procedure. The Board is the final level of appeal. All concerns, if presented to the Board directly, will be referred back to the building principal or Superintendent for investigation.

Board Members

 

boardThe Kuna School Board is the policy making body of the school district, establishing the principles that govern the daily operation of the school system. Each of the five trustees represent specific geographic zones in the district. Individual members have no authority to act on their own but meet as a board in a formal session. They receive no salaries or benefits and are elected to a Four-year term.

 

The community (parents and non-parents) is encouraged to attend school board meetings. The board offers numerous opportunities for patrons to serve on advisory committees and participate in policy making decisions.
