Board adopts Governance Standards

Washtenaw ISD Board of Education adopts Governance Standards

 

The Washtenaw ISD Board of Education took a major step toward demonstrating its commitment to governing effectively on behalf of the students and communities it serves by formally adopting the Board of Education Governance Standards at its October 10, 2017 meeting.

 

“We are excited to be among the many school districts in Michigan to adopt the BOE Governance Standards,” said Board President Mary Jane Tramontin. “We believe these standards are an important tool to help us with the vital task of governing our district. They will help us raise the bar, live up to expectations as elected officials, and better understand our roles as board members.”

 

The Board of Education Governance Standards were developed by school board members for school board members through the Michigan Association of School Boards. Washtenaw ISD Board Trustee Diane Hockett was one of the 14 board member contributors that established the standards. The principles provide a shared, research-based framework for effective school board governance. Not only do they define the values that should affect board decision making, but they also identify the specific behaviors of school boards and school board members that contribute to positive outcomes for students. And they do so in simple terms to be easily understood by board members and the entire school district community. 

 

“We believe that locally adopting the standards not only helps our governance team be more effective, but it sends a strong message that all of us as local school leaders are willing to step up and be held accountable,” said Tramontin. “We have standards for students, teachers and administrators, and now we have Board of Education Governance Standards for our board as well.”
