Section 200: School Board
Policy 200: Statement of Guiding Principles
It is the policy of the board of trustees to recognize and maintain the distinction between those activities which are appropriate to the board of trustees as the legislative governing body of the school district and those administrative activities which are to be performed by the superintendent of schools and his or her staff in the exercise of administrative authority. The functions of the board can be described as policy making, appraisal, and evaluation.
The board of trustees will have the further duty of providing the financial means by which the educational program is conducted. The board will also ensure that the community is informed of the needs, purposes, values, and status of the schools.
