Opportunities Unlimited. A Guide for Wisconsin School Board Members. Fifth Edition.
Rossmiller, Richard A.
This handbook is intended to provide authoritative information and guidance to school board members in meeting the responsibilities of service. Frequent reference is made to pertinent sections of the Wisconsin statutes, and in many such instances the number of the statute is given. The guide begins with an outline of the role of the school board and its relationship with other governmental units. Chapters discuss the school board, organization and responsibility; school board members, qualifications and legal authority; and school board meetings, procedures and requirements. Other chapters concern the responsibilities of school boards in regard to administrators and school personnel, and in dealing with educational programs, school finance, and the school plant. (MLF)
