Standard 5.

Element 5.3- Understand and can safeguard the values of
democracy, equity, and diversity within the school (MILF 8.1, 8.2,
Activity: Previous BOE Meetings
Develop, implement, and evaluate school policies and procedures
that support democratic values, equity, and diversity issues
Time: 5 hours

Description: Review past school board agendas, reports, and/or minutes.

Note significant events, policy changes, and recurring themes or concerns
that impact the school/district today.
I spent 2 hours searching for previous school board meetings and reports and
spent 3 hours reviewing the information on each of those meetings. The
meetings were monthly from January 2016-June 2016.

Reflection: Developing, implementing, and evaluating school policies and

procedures that support democratic values is an important task. Attending
school board meetings gives the insight to the current events before it gets
to the administrators and staff. Its important to keep up to date with the
policies and be able to demonstrate ethical behavior based on those policies.
When browsing through the meeting minutes, I noticed that policy change
isnt quickly done. It takes several meetings to begin to change and to obtain
a final statement. A variety of items were consistently discussed including
maintenance items, recognitions/proclamations, calendar updates, and CTE
