This is not a town, but a district. It is a board of education. There are three levels of self-awareness.
One of the first things our self-awareness is to do is read this board to see if it’s an official school board or not. If it’s not, we need to fill out our own board of education document and fill out the paperwork to become a board of education.
The most self-aware people are the ones that understand who they are, where they fit in the scheme of things, and what their priorities are. Self-awareness is the ability to control the way we think and act in order to meet our goals. It’s the ability to think about how our actions will affect others and how our actions will affect ourselves.
We’re talking about school boards. These are people who sit in a boardroom and make important decisions about how to deliver a school. They don’t just sit there and do nothing, they are the ones who make the decisions. If you don’t know who your school board members are, you don’t know who you are either.
I’ve always thought this is one of the greatest challenges in all of education. Not only does it come from the amount of information out there, but it also comes from the amount of power. We are told that a superintendent has the power to make hiring decisions or fire anyone. But that’s wrong. A superintendent is only 1/3 of the school board. The rest of the board are the ones who make those decisions.
A good superintendent should look at the whole picture when making a decision and be able to make an informed decision. Not just from the information, but from the experience of the superintendent. A good superintendent should work hard to get to know every single board member and their beliefs and values.
Thats not to say that everyone in the board is perfect. Some board members have been known to be very partisan. However, the vast majority of the board believe in the education system and are dedicated to helping students succeed. I think anyone who has worked in public education would agree that there are many, many problems that must be fixed, but there is a lot of common ground as well as a lot of disagreement.
The board is led by a president, who is elected by the members in a general board meeting. At the start of each term, the president calls a special meeting, where the entire board discusses and votes on items that affect the entire district. A good portion of the board is comprised of teachers, but the president is also the education director for the entire school district.
The problem is that sometimes a student doesn’t actually get to see the board in person, but instead can only get to see the board as a whole. Many people who live in the county in which you live don’t get to see the board as a whole too. Also, the school district doesn’t have a real board. Not only does the school district have a board, it also has a budget.
This is a major problem, because a board in a real school district is the only way the school district can control the way the school district runs. Any other board is a rubber stamp for whatever decision is made by whoever the chairman is. The problem here is that you dont get to choose the chairman. The board of education is the only way a school district can make decisions about what is going to happen in the future.
