  2. We do not have teach representation on the board. They are always welcomed to come to meetings and are encouraged to do so but they do not unless they are presenting to the board.

  3. Some towns have them and (even Student members!), and if the non-voting member brings useful information and perspective to the Board, it can be an effective experience for all. Where the non-voting student or educator is a mere figurehead, the effect may be seen as gimmickry and becomes an object of ridicule, something Boards simply don’t need…

  8. The only actual members on our Board are voting members. Our city has 9 members elected by the community. With that said, we do have the Superintendent and the Principals that attend every meeting, and other subject matter experts that come speak to the Board on issues as needed, but they do not have a vote. Additionally, members of the community are encouraged to attend meetings (as they are public meetings) to voice their opinions and ideas, but do not vote.

  12. We do not but both our Vice Principal and Principal attend Board meetings. We would be very open to teacher representation as a board, and of course all meetings are open to the public so anyone who would like to can attend.

  13. We do not have teacher representation on the Board…voting or otherwise. The Principal is one conduit between the staff and Board. We are ALWAYS open to any staff member who wishes to come speak with the Board as long as protcol(s) has been followed and there isn’t some attempt to circumvent said protocol(s).

  14. We do not, and I don’t feel it is necessary. We schedule periodic meetings between the executive board of the union that represents our faculty and support staff, attended by the superintendent and board chair. Concerns or issues resulting from this are subsequently brought to the board.

  15. Our board has a nonvoting STUDENT on the board that gives up dates on student activities and positions in the school This is a good idea, and we learn a lot.

  16. We do have 2 teachers present at most of our board meetings. This has proved extremely helpful so far, at least in my view. It’s always the same two, so there is continuity and an understanding of ongoing issues. Best has been the fact that they see the budgetary conundrums we face.

  17. We have had a non-voting teacher representatives for a number of years. The duties of this position have never been defined. Currently our teacher representative gives an oral report near the beginning of the meeting, almost always on events in the schools. The representative sometimes stays for the remained of the meeting, does not vote, and rarely participates in deliberation.
