BG - Board-Staff Communications

Code: BG
Re-adopted: 10/11/95, 8/13/97, 8/13/08, 6/8/22
Original Code: BG

The district desires to maintain open channels of communication between itself and the staff. The district will carry out a program whereby there will be a variety of communications intended to keep its employees fully informed of the Board’s priorities, concerns, action and activities taking place within the district. The superintendent will ensure that such communication will occur on an on-going basis throughout the school year and will be disseminated to all district employees as appropriate. This procedure will not be construed as denying the right of any employee to address the Board about issues which are neither part of an active administrative procedure nor disruptive to the operation of the district. In addition, this procedure does not restrict protected labor relations communications of bargaining unit members. Staff members are invited to Board meetings, which provide an opportunity to observe the Board’s deliberations on matters of staff concern.
