  • Establish goals and evaluate outcomes.
  • Adopt and evaluate policies.
  • Connect with the community.
  • Assure school district performance.

Making Board Decisions

A board of education is a governmental body, so it can take action only by a majority vote at a legally called public meeting. The individual board member's major responsibility is to study, evaluate, and, after due consideration, vote in the best interest of all students at such a meeting.
