Board of Education
Please take notice, that in light of the declaration of a Statewide and local State of Emergency pertaining to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Governor issued Executive Order 202.1 suspending certain requirements of the Open Meetings Law, including the provision that the public be allowed to attend in person. Additionally, Board members are permitted to attend the meeting through conference call or videoconferencing without giving the public the right to attend at any remote location.
The Haldane central school district board of education will convene on Thursday, August 6, 2020 at 7:00pm via Zoom. The Board is then expected to convene at 8:00pm into an Executive Session for the purpose of discussing collective negotiations pursuant to article fourteen of the civil service law.
Join via Zoom:
The public will not be permitted to attend the meeting in person or at any remote location where Board members will be situated. Therefore, the provisions of Board Policy 1510 (Regular Board Meetings and Rules) regarding public meetings, videoconference, and public expression at meetings are being suspending for this meeting and all other meetings until further notice. The public, however, will be able to watch or listen to this meeting through a Zoom link. Public comment will be received via the Zoom chat feature.
It is intended that the public portions of the meeting will be recorded and later posted.
A draft agenda will be available prior to the meeting on BoardDocs.
Haldane Central School Board Goals 2019-2020
Goal 1: Policy Manual Audit
One of the Board of Education’s primary responsibilities is to set the policies for the District which are then put into practice by the Administration. Meaningful and up-to-date policies are essential for effective governance, efficient administration, and excellence in education. Having completed the foundational work last year, over the course of 2019-2020, it is our intention to:
- Approve and implement an updated policy manual.
- Review and update policies to make sure that they reflect the needs of our community. We will review approximately 100 pages of policy per year, so that we complete a full policy manual audit in approximately 5 years’ time.
- Incorporate any new policies that arise out of legislative, educational, or community changes over the course of the year.
goal 2: Self-Evaluation Tool
Self-Assessment is essential to continuous and meaningful improvement. We will engage NYSSBA to learn about their School Board Self-Evaluation tool and implement it this school year. It is the Board’s intention to have honest and constructive dialogue regarding our performance so that we can adopt optimal board governance practices.
