Bass In For Run At School Board
"Excellence in the classroom begins with excellence in the boardroom"
Released by Jack Bass, Chilliwack
hese are challenging times for public education, and the work of our school board. The board has the role of leadership in public education. It follows that the Board needs persons with demonstrated leadership abilities.
The board can place the proper keystones for each student to learn and achieve to their highest level possible. Board members' primary agenda is supporting student achievement and involving the community in the attainment of that goal.
Excellence in the classroom begins with excellence in the boardroom. Chilliwack Can Meet the Challenges of Today’s Education.
We begin with a vision of the community education future and then formulate the goals, defines the outcomes, and sets the course for our schools. It is about where we are going and what kind of school systems we are trying to create now and for the future. I am not going to provide all the answers I intend to listen to you.
For the past two years I have developed and taught Fraser Valley businesses and their employees how to develop their visions into goals and action plans – and then to accomplish those plans. You can review my bio and business background. at www.jackbassteam.com
Closely related to vision is our mission. At one level, the mission of an organization is what it is created to do. In effective organizations, the mission statement also captures and reflects the core values and beliefs that guide the organization and its members in pursuit of stated aims and goals.
In a systems approach we establish standards for performance. In order to know whether we are performing in accordance with expectations, we need to establish specific and clearly delineated standards. Those standards need to be tied in realistic ways to the expectations of the community.
Promoting outstanding student performance based on clearly delineated standards is central to the key . The next step is to determine how well students are doing in meeting those standards. Parents and school boards need information in order to make decisions, not only about how well the teachers, students and schools are doing, but also about what may be needed in order to ensure that system goals will be met.
