Structure is important to understand. A School Board, by design, is a very structured organization. I learned a tremendous amount about the responsibilities of a school board.

A local school board has responsibility in three areas:

Approve the Budget
Set Policy
Hire the Superintendent

That is what a school board does. Within these three seemingly simple tasks are a plethora of nuances that drive decisions. I feel it is important for a school board to remain focused on its primary role.

A local school board provides the “flavor” of the community, but we cannot go beyond what we are tasked to do.   Through my tenure  I am honored to share the board room with dynamic individuals who truly understand the scope and responsibilities of a school board.   This common understanding of common goals is one of the traits that makes our school corporation special.
