BP 1500

Community Relations

Relation between Area, State, Regional & National Associations and the Schools

 

Membership is recognized associations such as California School Administrators will be maintained by the County Office of Education for several reasons, including:

  1. The in-service education benefits to our staff and board which come from participation in meeting conferences, clinics and conventions.
  2. Access to the communication media of such associations, such as newsletters, periodicals and advisory services.
  3. Representation in actions affecting education in general and our board in particular.

 

The county board in encouraging such membership in no way abdicates its authority over the responsibility for the program of the agency as outlined in state law and county board policy.

The superintendent of schools is requested to budget funds for such membership, and for paying the cost of adequate participation of county board, administration and staff in the activities of such associations to achieve the purposes listed above.
