Opportunities For Growth in Boardsmanship
Board members, individually or as a body, may avail themselves of opportunities
for growth in boardsmanship in order to meet their responsibilities as
members of the St. Louis Board of Education.
A board member wishing to attend a conference, workshop, meeting, etc.,
for the purpose of developing his/her skills in carrying out the duties
of his/her role as a member of the board must request approval from the
board for attendance and expenses at a scheduled regular business, or
special board meeting or, if time-lines do not permit this action, must
apply to the president of the board for authorization for attendance and
expenses with ratification by the board at the next scheduled regular
business or special board meeting.
The board president, on behalf of and in conjunction with the board, shall coordinate appropriate opportunities for growth in boardsmanship for the full board.
