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.
