School Committee Member Development Opportunities

Ongoing development and in-service education are critical aspects of the overall operation of a school system. It is recognized that the School Committee members of this school unit, like administrators, teachers and other school personnel, need to be well informed and to stay current on education issues. Continually enhancing boardsmanship skills is necessary to make each member the best that he/she can be.

Participation is encouraged in appropriate local, regional, state and national programs sponsored by the Maine School Boards Association, the Maine School Management Association, the National School Boards Association and other recognized leaders in education. This School Committee is committed to the further development of its members so that the greatest good can be rendered by them on behalf of the students in our schools. Adequate funds are to be budgeted annually to fulfill that important responsibility of school governance.

Reasonable expenses incurred by School Committee members when giving of their time to obtain in-service education shall be reimbursed in accordance with existing policy and budget allocations.
