 Board Representatives

The County Board of Education recognizes that effective performance of its community leadership responsibilities may require its participation on various committees on matters of concern to the County Board, the county office of education (COE), or the districts, schools, and students within its jurisdiction.  The County Board may appoint any of its members to serve as its representative on a committee of another public agency or organization of which the County Board is a member or to which the County Board is invited to participate.

If a committee discusses a topic on which the County Board has taken a position, the County Board member shall express the position of the County Board.  When contributing his/her own ideas or opinions, the representative shall very clearly indicate that he/she is expressing his/her individual idea or opinion and not the opinions of the County Board.

When making such appointments, the County Board shall clearly specify the authority and responsibilities of the representative(s), including, but not limited to, reporting back to the County Board regarding committee activities and/or actions.  County Board representatives shall not exercise the authority of the County Board without prior County Board approval.
