As members of the Board of Education, Board members will strive to improve public education and to that end they will:
A. attend all regularly scheduled Board meetings insofar as possible, and become informed concerning the issues to be considered at those meetings;
B. recognize that they should endeavor to make policy decisions only after full discussion at publicly held Board meetings;
C. render all decisions based on the available facts and independent judgment, and refuse to surrender that judgment to individuals or special interest groups;
E. work with the other Board members to establish effective Board policies and to delegate authority for the administration of the District to the District Administrator;
F. communicate to other Board members and the District Administrator expressions of public reaction to Board policies and school programs;
G. inform themselves about current educational issues by individual study and through participation in programs providing needed information, such as those sponsored by the State and National School Boards Associations;
H. support the employment of those persons best qualified to serve as school staff, and insist on a regular and impartial evaluation of all staff;
I. avoid being placed in a position of conflict of interest, and refrain from using their Board positions for personal partisan gain;
K. remember always that their first and greatest concern must be for the educational welfare of the students attending the public schools.
