Membership in recognized associations will be maintained by the schools for several reasons, including:
- The in-service education benefits to our staff and Board which come from participating in meetings, conferences, clinics, and conventions.
- Access to the communication of media of such associations, such as newsletters, periodicals, and advisory services.
- Representation in actions affecting education in general and our school district in particular.
The Board in maintaining such membership in no way abdicates its authority over and responsibility for the schools of the district as outlined in state law and Board policy.
The Superintendent is authorized to budget funds to such memberships, and for paying the costs of adequate participation of staff in the activities of such associations to achieve the purposes listed above.
