Successful education programs require the support of the Wapello School District community. The board addresses the importance of the role of the school district community in the school district in this series of the policy manual. The board recognizes this support is dependent on the school district community's understanding of participation in the efforts, goals, problems and programs of the school district.
The Superintendent of Schools shall be responsible for initiating and administering a continuous program of communication within the community. He shall utilize needed school personnel and all media available in discharging this responsibility.
In this section, the board sets out its policies defining its relationship with the school district community. In striving to obtain the support of the school district community, the board will:
- Provide access to school district records;
- Inform the school district community of the school district's goals, objectives, achievements, and needs;
- Invite the input of the school district community; and,
- Encourage cooperation between the school district and the school district community as well as with agencies and organizations to best serve the welfare of its students.
