Policy Governance
In 2005, the Board conducted extensive research before adopting a specific governance structure called Policy Governance. Four categories of Board policies create the structure, as described below:

These policies prescribe how the Board will operate and effectively work together.

These policies prescribe how the Board will operate and effectively work together.

These policies prescribe the expected district outcomes in terms of student achievement.

These policies set the responsibilities of the Superintendent in the strategic leadership of the school district and the comprehensive day-to-day operations.

This is the calendar that the board uses for working with the Superintendent to review the Policy Governance structure. As the Executive Responsibilities are approved by the School Board they are posted on the district website.

In addition to the Policy Governance structure the School Board reviews and adopts Board Policies which outline the operational structure of the school district and assure that the district meets all regulatory mandates established in Washington State and Federal law. School Board policies are organized under six categories: Directors, Instruction, Students, Community Relations, Personnel, and Management Support. See School Board Policies.
