The Rivendell Interstate School Board members are committed to the School District mission and goals. Every member of the Board is completely conversant with the philosophy and principles that are the foundation of school district. The school Board applies this mission and related goals to decision making.
The Board is focused on the future and is proactive in identifying trends and issues that will need to be considered in maintaining the vitality and efficacy of the school system. The Board sets the direction of the schools through the development of policy and entrusting its administration personnel to carry out daily operations and instrumental processes. The Board members know about the intricacies of various roles, responsibilities and functions and inform interested parties about appropriate procedures for growing need information and resolving conflicts. The School Board operates as a whole except for carefully crafted and articulated work and functions of sub-committees.
School Board sub-committees are formed to enable achievement of goals with efficiency and effectiveness. Sub-committees operate with specific charges established by the Board and clear understanding of roles, responsibilities and relationships with the School Board as a whole. Each sub-committee has clear expectations and understands the importance of accountability.
The School Board is committed to maintaining continuity in quality education to trust and be trusted by the citizenry of all four-member towns making up the one school district. Board members are respectful of the uniqueness of each community and at the same time committed to the formation of a unified school district.
