Board of Education and Superintendent Operating Protocols


The Board of Education is the policy-making body for the District that conducts its work in public.  To effectively meet the District’s challenges, the Board and the Superintendent must function together as a governance team.  To ensure unity among team members, effective operating procedures, or protocols, must be in place.  There are general protocols and those that are specific for the Board and the Superintendent.
