Role of the School Board Members
School board members are policy makers who set district strategy and long-term goals and objectives. School board members often confront decisions that call for expertise they personally lack. This is particularly true in educational facility management, where major facility concerns arise infrequently and board members experience may be particularly limited.
It is not recommended that school board members become involved with every detail of an educational facilities construction program.
Gaining heightened awareness of the facilities management process, the impact of new instructional technology on that process, and the general management conditions most suitable for project efficiency and success is prudent for successful district policy leadership and should be encouraged.
