Role of School Board Members

VISION: The school board engages the community in setting the course to guide local education, keeping student achievement as the primary focus.

STRUCTURE: The school board employs a superintendent, adopts policies and plans, and ensures that human and financial resources are allocated to accomplish the vision.

ACCOUNTABILITY: The board monitors student achievement, evaluates progress toward district goals, and reports progress to the community.

ADVOCACY: The school board serves as the key advocate on behalf of students and public education and builds partnerships with others to support student learning.

TIME DONATED TO PUBLIC EDUCATION: Iowa school board members are volunteer elected officials who donate their time to school board service. Each week, Iowa school board members donate thousands of hours in service to Iowa students.


Goals: 

Teaching and Learning  
The Board of Education will support and carefully monitor future focused learning with an emphasis on competency based education, project based learning, and Iowa Core Curriculum (21st Century Learning) in a technology enhanced learning environment.

Facilities
The Board of Education will carefully assess facility needs to modify the district's 10 year plan. They will monitor the district's financial capacity for construction and remodeling based on Local Option and PPEL dollars available.

Financial
The Board of Education will continue to monitor the 5 Financial Measurement Tools from ISFIS and how state funding will impact future budgets. See attachment on right. (5 Key Financial Measurements)

Professional Development
