Board Policies policy.osba.org/jewell/index.asp





*These dates are the proposed dates and may be changed or added to by the Board in response to the needs of the district and in accordance with public meeting requirements.

The board of directors is an elected body of respected community members who are responsible for the direction of the schools. The board is the authority for local school regulations, policy, programs, and procedures within the framework of state law. As board members, they are responsible for translating the educational ideals, values, and goals of the community into concepts of policy. They ensure goals are set to provide long-range planning; the district budget is balanced; legal interests are protected; and that buildings and grounds are maintained. The Superintendent reports directly to the board of directors and sees that policies are implemented
Our hope is that you will leave this meeting with a better understanding of your public schools and the school board that you’ve elected to oversee them.
Our meetings are open to the public and nearly all our discussion will be held in the open. The exception would be if it is necessary to discuss personnel, litigation, bargaining agreements, complaints against an officer or staff member, or real estate transactions where disclosure would be damaging. In those cases, we may occasionally go into a closed or “executive” session.
School board members are elected officials, who serve four-year terms of office. In addition to making a number of decisions at school board meetings, we try to keep lines of communications open with our community and represent the needs of the district before state and national representatives.
We serve on the school board because we care about providing quality education in our community. You are probably here tonight because you care, too. We appreciate your interest and comments toward meeting that goal.
We receive a full agenda a few days prior to the board meeting. The agenda may deal with such topics as curriculum, budget, hiring of personnel, facilities, school transportation, or long-range planning.
Our agenda usually includes written supporting material that helps us with our decision-making. If it appears that we take quick action on an item, it may be because we have been studying it for several meetings prior to this or we have asked our questions in advance of the meeting.
The “consent agenda” items are regular business items that we have inpidually reviewed and agree to approve collectively; or we may agree to remove from the consent agenda any item(s) we wish to discuss. The criteria for consent are business items that are not controversial or needing discussion.
