ABOUT Philosophy

School Board Members Focus On Policy & Governance. At present there is a 1.3 billion dollar budget from FY2021/2022 that will be increasing proportionally to inflated property values (stay tuned). Guiding the district's budget, approving bills, and establishing spending priorities fall under the purview of the elected 5 member board.

Formulation Of District Policy. Resolution Of Issues Connected To Policy. By creating the right conditions for excellence to flourish and setting high expectations of success will have an effect — positive or negative — on student outcomes. The impact is not direct like a teacher or school leader.

Curriculum Adoption & Ensuring Teachers & Students Have Resources Needed. By setting board goals and initiating conversations with key personnel about programs in place to provide support for teachers, board members can help strengthen efforts to improve teacher retention.
