The success of a Board of Education starts with holding effective, efficient and satisfying meetings. If Board members find that they are unable to accomplish their goals during meetings, many tools exist for improving the process. One of the main tools is a well constructed agenda that focuses the Board’s attention on important matters and reduces the tendency to delve into tangential areas. The Board Secretary along with the Superintendent and Board President are responsible for the creation of such agendas. The Board secretary is also responsible for recording Board member votes and taking minutes.
It is also the Board Secretary’s responsibility to monitor training requirements, arrange for special presentations, and coordinate all election requirements for Board Members in April. Each member of the Board runs for a three year term and has the responsibility of managing the Board Secretary, the school auditor, and the Superintendent.
