Board Resolution

Resolution 2001-03-22-01 In Support of CSBA’s Professional Governance Standards

Whereas, Local boards of education are entrusted by their diverse communities to uphold the constitution, protect the public interest in schools and ensure that a high quality education is provided to each student; and

Whereas, Local boards must govern responsibly and effectively on behalf of the students and communities they serve; and

Whereas,  The California School Boards Association has developed a set of Professional Governance Standards which describe the commonly agreed upon principles of effective governance in three interrelated categories; and

Whereas,  These Professional Governance Standards reflect consensus among hundreds of school board members, superintendents and other educational leaders throughout the state, and are based on research and the CSBA Effective Governance System; and

Whereas,  The intent of these Professional Governance Standards is to enhance the public’s understanding about the critical responsibilities of local boards and to support local boards in their efforts to govern effectively; and

Whereas,  The Professional Governance Standards will be utilized to help enhance our district’s effectiveness and to help our local communities and parents to better understand the structure and function of a local school board;

Now, Therefore be it Resolved that the Board of Education of San José Unified School District, County of Santa Clara, State of California , on the 22nd day of March, 2001, adopt the CSBA Professional Governance Standards by the following vote:
