Schools are an integral part of community development. All reasonable efforts will be made to identify the community priorities and to be responsive, through Board action, to these priorities.  There are two major ways in which the will of the community shall influence the development of Board priorities:

 

  • The citizens of the Division are responsible for electing members to the Board.
  • All citizens of the Division are encouraged to express ideas, concerns, and opinions about public education through such means as:
    • Written suggestions or proposals.
    • Presentations at hearings or at Board meetings.
    • Responses to surveys made regarding education.
    • Attendance at community meetings sponsored by the Board.
    • Active involvement with advisory councils.
