I would meet with the superintendent a week before the meeting to discuss how he or she communicated with board members and prepared for the meeting.Then I'd come back to observe the operation of the meeting and conduct of the participants.
Since then , I've learned a lot about board meetings in 12 years as a superintendent--most notably that boards are charged with an awesome responsibility to perform a prescribed function in a limited amount of time.Time needs to be used wisely and judiciously through a decision-making process that focuses on issues that promote the growth and development of education.Each member of the board should have a thorough understanding of his or her part in the process and how board members function within that process in their role as ambassadors for public schools in their community.
