GP 4 Agenda Planning

GP 4 Agenda Planning

To accomplish its job outcomes with a governance style consistent with board policies, the board will follow an annual agenda that (a) completes a re-exploration of Ends policies annually and (b) continually improves board performance through board education and enriched input and deliberation.

1. The cycle will conclude each year on the last day of August so that administrative planning and budgeting can be based on accomplishing a one-year segment of the board’s most recent statement of long-term ends.

2. The cycle will start with the board’s development of its agenda for the next year.

A. Consultations with selected groups in the ownership, or other methods of gaining ownership input, will be determined and arranged in the first quarter, to be held during the balance of the year.

B. Governance education and education related to ends determination (presentations by futurists, demographers, advocacy groups, staff, and so on) will be arranged in the first quarter, to be held during the balance of the year.

C. A board member may recommend or request an item for board discussion by submitting the item to the Chair no later than five days before the board meeting.

3. Throughout the year, the board will attend to consent agenda items as expeditiously as possible.

A. Only the majority of the board can remove an item

4. Superintendent monitoring will be included on the agenda if monitoring reports show policy violations, if policy criteria are to be debated, or if the board, for any reason, chooses to debate amending its monitoring schedule.

5. Superintendent compensation will be decided after a review of monitoring reports received in the last year during the month of December.
