THE PEOPLE AND THEIR SCHOOL UNIT
The public schools belong to the people. The people exercise their proprietorship through the elective process at the national, state and local levels. They elect state and federal representatives who establish the framework of laws within which the schools operate. The people elect a Board of Directors to represent them to determine local educational policy.
The Board is mindful that its members are accountable to the people through the elective process. The Board also believes that accountability for the effectiveness of the school unit is a responsibility shared by the Directors, the Superintendent, students, teachers, administrators, and the people.
