School Board

The Othello School District board of directors follows the policy model of Policy Governance.

Policy Governance® is a fundamental redesign of the role of the board, emphasizing values, vision and the empowerment of both board and staff.  It is designed to create a clear structure for a board of directors to be accountable to the community that they serve.  This model enables the board to:

  • Focus on the larger issues,
  • Clearly delegate authority,
  • Direct management’s job without interfering, and
  • Rigorously evaluate what is accomplished.
