Another “Anderson Apocalypse Update” E-dition

While serving as a member of my board of education, I will accept the responsibility to improve education. To that I will:

Remember that my first and greatest concern must be the educational welfare of all students attending the public schools;

Obey the laws of Ohio and the United States;

Respect the confidentiality of privileged information;

Recognize that as an individual board member I have no authority to speak or act for the board;

Work with other members to establish effective board policies;

Delegate authority for the administration of the schools to the superintendent and staff;

Encourage ongoing communications among board members, the board, students, staff, and the community;

Render all decisions based on the available facts and my independent judgment rather than succumbing to the influence of individuals or special interest groups;

Make every effort to attend all board meetings;

Become informed concerning the issues to be considered at each meeting;

Improve my boardmanship by studying educational issues and by participating in in-service programs;

Support the employment of staff members based on qualifications and not as a result of influence;

Cooperate with other board members and administrators to establish a system of regular and impartial evaluations of all staff;

Avoid conflicts of interest or the appearance thereof;

Refrain from using my board position for benefit of myself, family members or business associates;

Express my personal opinions but, once the board has acted, accept the will of the majority.

Adopted by the OSBA Delegate Assembly November 11, 1991

Maybe You’ll See For Yourself At The Next Anderson Apocalypse Political Correctness Indoctrination scheduled on June 12 at Nagel School, where Lunatic Liberal Non-Residents can claim to be really offended so the Forest Hills School Board can piss away a million dollars they don’t have to change the 80-year-old Anderson Redskins Team Name.
