COMMUNICATIONS WITH THE PUBLIC
The Board of Education regards education as a cooperative effort involving the schools, parents and the community. Accordingly, school personnel are encouraged to make every effort to communicate and cooperate with parents and the community.
The school staff, administration, and Board of Education should take into consideration the community's goals and concerns for its children. These concerns shall be used to inform decision making regarding curriculum, program, and activity revisions.
The Board encourages public input into the decision making process. The Board will use various means to disseminate school district information and to receive information from the community. Members of the community are encouraged to visit the District's website for information about the District.
Staff members shall be kept informed of community relations efforts, and their support and participation in such efforts shall be sought.
The Board of Education will place on its agenda any properly signed written communication from a citizen or organization. Issues communicated to the Board will be addressed in writing by the Superintendent or their designee.
