The Board of Education recognizes that constructive study, discussion, and active participation by citizens is necessary to promote the best program of education in the community. To encourage this participation, the Board enacts the following policies.

Citizens Advisory Councils will exist to provide for greater community involvement in the educational planning process.

The parents/citizens selected as members of committees should collectively be representative of the entire community and its varying viewpoints. All committees appointed by the Board will comply with applicable local, state, and federal legislation.

Parents are encouraged to visit the schools throughout the school year. Conferences between such visitors and employees should not interfere with the employee's assigned duties. All visitors must sign-in at the office of the school. Visitors should verify their identity and the purpose for their visit. A visitor must obtain permission of the principal before entering a classroom.
