  2. Continually improves Board performance through Board education and enriched input and deliberation.
  1. To accomplish administrative planning and budgeting, based on a one-year segment of the most recent statement of long-term Ends, the cycle will conclude each year on the last day of September.
  2. The cycle will start with the Board's development of its agenda for the next year.
    1. Consultations with selected groups in the ownership or other methods of gaining ownership input will be determined and arranged in the first quarter, to be held during the balance of the year.

  4. Superintendent compensation will be decided annually following a performance appraisal that shall include a review of monitoring reports received from the previous year.
  5. Superintendent monitoring will be on the agenda: if reports have been received since the previous meeting; if plans must be made for direct inspection monitoring; or if arrangement for third-party monitoring must be prepared.
