Through public advocacy and community engagement, school boards share their concerns, positions and actions with the public. Community leadership that builds public support is critical to effectively implementing the board’s vision. The board recognizes the impact of public education on the community and understands how strong connections mean everyone is invested in ensuring the success of all students.
The board maintains and updates a legislative platform that supports the organization's mission and vision. The platform is arranged by topics or issues with stated priorities to focus collaboration efforts with local and regional community members and policymakers. The platform articulates the district’s interests in improving student outcomes and the long-term sustainability of high-quality public education. The board’s legislative platform is accessible to the public in the online system BoardDocs.
