In the Board Buddy Program, each member of the Board of Education is buddied to a school in the District for one quarter. During that time, the BOE member will attend as many of the events in the school as possible to learn about each individual school’s culture, climate, parents, and students.

Events may include meet-the-teacher night, awards ceremonies, concerts, major PTA events and any other program unique to the school. This system serves to expose each member of the board to each school in a meaningful way. It also lessens the load on the collective board.

Individual board members are not expected to attend activities in every school, although, of course, there is no restriction on activities. If a board member wishes to attend a function outside of their buddy placement for the quarter, they are encouraged to do so too. The Clerks office will put together a list of events that all board members have traditionally attended (e.g. high school graduation), so that they can be added to board members’ schedules in advance.
