New Board Member Orientation
A new member—or any person designated for appointment
as a new member of the Board—is to be afforded the Board’s
and the staff’s fullest measure of courtesy and cooperation.
Board and staff shall make every feasible effort to assist
the new member to become fully informed about the Board’s
functions, policies, procedures, and issues.
Each new member will be provided with printed materials, including
a copy of the current budget, a copy of the current negotiated
agreement, NHSBA new member orientation materials, and other
Board members will be given every opportunity to learn more
about their role, school programs, State Department of Education
functions, and legislative activities. Members who take part
in workshops and seminars offered by the New Hampshire School
Boards Association and other appropriate organizations will
be reimbursed for travel and other expenses related to participation
in training activities, provided prior approval is obtained
from the Board and funds for these purposes are available.
