THE BOARD OF TRUSTEES                                                                                                1650


New Board Member Workshop


The Gooding Joint School District Board of Trustees will assist newly elected or appointed Board Members to become familiar with their duties and responsibilities as quickly as possible. All Board Members are encouraged to attend appropriate workshops, seminars, and conventions in order to develop professionalism and expertise in governance.


Newly elected/appointed Board Members are required by this Board policy to complete at least 4 hours of instruction on education issues; education issues include Idaho education laws, school finance, ethics, duties, and responsibilities of District Board Members. The 4 hours of instruction must be accomplished during the first 6 months of the Board Member’s tenure. The Board and the Superintendent will ensure that new Members are notified of the date and time of such workshops.


Upon completion of either a new Board Member workshop or 4 hours of other workshops, the information will be recorded into the Board minutes.


Board Members who attend and successfully complete such workshops, shall be reimbursed for actual expenses for lodging, meals, registration fees, and transportation to and from the location of the workshop as prescribed in Policy 1420 Trustee Expenses.


The Superintendent or his or her designee will maintain records of each Board Member’s training accomplishments and will notify any Board Member of the need for that Board Member to accomplish any additional training.
