The Board supports the philosophy of shared decision-making as called for in the District Strategic Plan. Shared decision-making shall support increased student achievement and improvement in the education process. The philosophy of shared decision-making shall be evident in the District through the opportunity for personnel, parents, community members, and students when appropriate, to collaborate in the design and implementation of (1) mission statements, (2) objectives, (3) strategies and action plans, (4) evaluation methods, (5) responses to results of evaluation, and (6) reporting activities.
While fully supporting these collaborative efforts, the Board recognizes its ultimate authority and responsibility for decisions which impact the direction of education in the District.
This policy and related rule will be reviewed by the Board of Education every other year.
