Adoption Date: 7/7/2009
1000 - Bylaws


The success of any school system requires effective communication between the Board of Education and school staff. The Board encourages a two-day flow of communication with the employees regarding the operation of the District.

The main goal of both the Board and the staff is to provide the best possible educational opportunities for the entire community. To achieve this end, good Board-staff relations must be maintained in a climate of mutual trust and respect.

In accordance with good personnel practice, staff participation in the development of educational and personnel policies will be encouraged and facilitated. The Superintendent of Schools shall develop methods to keep staff fully informed of the Board's problems, concerns and actions, and for staff to communicate information related to District operations.

All communications and reports to the Board from staff members and staff organizations will be submitted to the Board through the Superintendent. All official communications, policies, and directives of staff interest and concern will be communicated to staff members through the Superintendent. However, this will not be construed as denying the right of any staff member to appeal any action or decision of the Superintendent to the Board.
