The North Mason School District Board of Director’s operates with policies designed to focus the district’s attention on student achievement results.
The board’s policies fall into four categories:
1. End Results – What North Mason School District graduates should know, understand, and be able to do.
2. Governance Process - How the board will conduct its business. Specifically, the Governance Process policies call on the board to focus on strategic leadership, establishing vision and specifying desired results, rather than on administrative detail.
3. Board/Superintendent Relationship – These policies clarify the relationship between the board and the superintendent. The board delegates the day-to-day operations of the school district to the superintendent. The superintendent will be held accountable for leading the district’s personnel in moving toward accomplishment of the board’s identified End Results while at the same time working within the framework established by the board. The board will monitor the district’s compliance with various policies throughout each year.
4. Executive Requirements - Executive Requirements define the framework within which the superintendent and staff are to work. The superintendent is expected to devote her/his time to moving the district toward accomplishment of the End Results policies. S/he is authorized to make decisions and take actions within the framework provided by the board.
