BOARD OF EDUCATION COMMITTEES
The purpose of this committee system is an effort to increase the involvement of board members and patrons in the operation of school district affairs. Most people work better, more enthusiastically, and at a higher level of motivation when they are given a reasonable degree of freedom to act and to contribute. When effective, the participative leadership style of the committee structure can establish a work climate in which the potential power of people is unleashed.
