Series 100:  Board Operations
    Code Title:
    Policy Code:
    December 20, 2017
    The School Board believes that reflection and evaluation is essential to the continual improvement and success of a school district. The Board self-evaluation process provides an opportunity for the Board to reflect on its performance in relation to stated goals, priorities, and Board governance policies. The process also provides input for establishing any new Board-specific goals.
    Therefore, the Board directs the District Administrator to work with the Board President to structure a time and process for the Board to conduct at least an annual self-evaluation to assess the Board’s overall functioning, the Board’s contributions toward the accomplishment of District goals, and the Board’s progress toward the accomplishment of any Board-specific goals that the Board previously established for itself.
    Some of the areas of Board responsibility and relationships that may be evaluated as part of the Board’s annual self-evaluation include, but are not limited to:
    • Strategic planning;
    • Policy development and oversight;
    • Fiscal oversight and resource allocation;
    • Oversight of curriculum and instruction;
    • Monitoring of student achievement;
    • The Board’s meeting management, meeting procedures, and decision-making processes;
    • Board member development;
    • Board-administrator and Board-staff communications and relations;
    • Community engagement and collaboration; and
    • Board legislative involvement and advocacy.
