The Board will have a work session this evening from 5:00 to 6:30 on the District Vision.
Here is the agenda:
- Call to order: 5:00 pm
- Work Session: District Vision
- Adjourn 6:30 pm
Yep. That's it.
Board Policy 1005, Responsibilities and Authority of the Board, says, in part:
Acting on behalf of the people of Seattle, the Board will fulfill the following functions:
Vision: The Board, with participation of the community, shall establish core beliefs and create a vision for the future of the district, formulate and adopt a theory of action for academic change, and shall formulate the goals and define policies and outcomes that set the course for the district.So the Board needs to work on this Vision thing, and a work session is appropriate, as well as their Retreats, but I'm wondering where the "with participation of the community" part comes in.
I'm not able to get to the School District Headquarters by 5:00pm to witness this meeting first-hand because I have one of those job things, but I will look forward to reading the minutes of this meeting.
