What A School Board Should Offer
Parents, teachers and staff ought to know how to deal with issues as they arise. The board has an obligation to the community to make that process clear and make themselves available. I suggest posting on the school system's website, a clear step-by-step process for conflict resolution.
The public has a right to know where, why and how money is spent and have input on all policies and programs. As a board member, I will encourage and strive for transparency in all board actions. I suggest creating a school board website that posts the public concerns, suggestions and proposed solutions. Additionally, regular town halls and forums should be held to address the community concerns.
Our superintendent and schools ought to be held to the highest standards. A board member is responsible for overseeing that
this is occurring.
