Every effort will be made to assist new Board members to become fully informed about the Board’s functions, policies, procedures and current issues.
In the interim between appointment/election and actually assuming office, the new member will be invited to attend all meetings and functions of the Board, except executive sessions, and is to receive all reports and communications sent to Board members. It is anticipated that the Board member-elect will agree to fully assume the responsibility of maintaining confidentiality to the same degree as when officially sworn in.
New members will be expected to attend an orientation workshop. The orientation should take place within one month of the new member assuming office. The Superintendent, Chair, and Vice-Chair will prepare the orientation. This orientation should include a thorough review of the Board Policies Section B, School Board Governance and Operations.
New members will be provided copies of all appropriate materials, including the Board Policy Manual.
