The Southwest Booster - - NEWS - ELISABETHD­OWSON

Back af­ter a month’s break, the Board of the Chi­nook School Di­vi­sion re­con­vened on Au­gust 23rd to deal with mis­cel­la­neous ad­min­is­tra­tive items, in­clud­ing a pro­posed ben­e­fit pack­age for Board mem­bers and re­vi­sions to a num­ber of gov­er­nance, pro­ce­dure and ad­min­is­tra­tive poli­cies in­tended to fa­cil­i­tate teamwork within the group.

“Since the new board has taken over last year, we have five new board mem­bers and we’ve had a chance to re­view our poli­cies, to tweak them, to ad­just a lit­tle bit where they needed to be ad­justed, now that we’re in op­er­a­tional mode,” ex­plained Board Chair Randy Beler.

In the com­ing year, the Board will cre­ate four Stand­ing Com­mit­tees: Fi­nance/Bud­get; Fa­cil­i­ties; Trans­porta­tion; and Technology. Mem­bers who choose to par­tic­i­pate in the com­mit­tees will gain in-depth knowl­edge in those ar­eas that can then be re­lated back to the Board, hope­fully en­cap­su­lat­ing in­for­ma­tion and stream­lin­ing Board meet­ings.

“The plan with the com­mit­tees,” added Beler, “is to en­act them when we have our or­ga­ni­za­tional meet­ing in Novem­ber. We may en­act the Fa­cil­i­ties Com­mit­tee a lit­tle sooner.”

The Board will meet again on Septem­ber 13th
