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.
