Board of Education
The duties of the Board include:
- Appoint and evaluate the superintendent of schools.
- Establish and monitor school policies for effectiveness.
- Prepare and adopt, with the aid of the superintendent, an annual budget.
- Interpret the needs of the Clintondale community, and keep the community informed of the goals, values, conditions, and requirements of the Clintondale Community School District.
Regular general board meetings are held on the second and fourth Monday of each month and always start at 6:30 p.m.
School board committees can divide the labor of governing into manageable categories, enabling board members to delve into governing matters in greater detail than is possible at the full board level. As such, board members are better prepared for full board meetings. This ultimately improves the quality of board decision making.
In-depth committee work builds governing expertise among board members, while also strengthening their sense of ownership and commitment. Board decisions that are supported by detailed standing committee work are firmer because of the ownership that is built at the committee level.
Clintondale Community Schools is a progressive community-oriented institution that is dedicated to meeting the educational needs of the students through a comprehensive range of quality educational programs. With the realization that education is both a right and a privilege, the schools will plan their programs to give equal educational opportunities to students of varying interests and abilities.
To attain this goal, a staff or individually qualified persons, devoted to, and motivated by a common purpose, must function with students and each other in a workable, democratic relationship involving mutual confidence, respect, helpfulness and planning.
Through classroom work and student activities, they will provide practical experiences designed to perpetuate the fundamental concepts of American democracy and to meet the leisure, recreational, social and emotional interests and needs of students.
