SCHOOL-COMMUNITY RELATIONS GOALS
The Central Community School Board, in an effort to ensure and enhance the possibilities for excellence in the education of children in a free society, presents and endorses this statement of policy on school and community relations because of its conviction that (a) the public schools belong in every sense to the people who created them by consent, and support them by taxation; (b) the schools are only as strong as the intelligent and informed support of the people of the community, and never any stronger; and (c) the support of the people must be based upon their knowledge of their understanding about, and their participation in the aims and efforts of the public schools.
The School Board therefore reaffirms and declares its design and intent:
to keep the citizens of the system regularly and thoroughly
informed through all the channels of communication on all the policies,
programs, problems, and planning of the school system, and to carry
out this policy through its own efforts and the office of the Superintendent.
to invite the advice and counsel of the people of the school
system at all times and especially at all monthly meetings of the
School Board, except at executive sessions.
and to solicit the sound thinking and studied counsels of the people through advisory committees selected from the community and appointed by this School Board to consider those problems which vitally affect the future of the children in the community.
