|The County Board of Education is committed to providing educational programs which meet state mandates and reflect the needs of the local community and society in general. The County Board appreciates the importance of community involvement and therefore shall strive to keep the community fully informed of new and changing developments.
In order to maintain effective communications with the community, the Board shall promote public relations at both the school and County Office levels. Members of the community shall be offered a variety of ways to become involved in the schools and to express their interests and concerns. The County Superintendent or designee shall use all available means of communication to keep the public aware of the goals, programs, achievements and needs of our schools.
The County Board shall provide public information as allowed by law and as requested by the public in timely, understandable and appropriate ways.
Mass Mailing or Distributions
The County Board recognizes that state law prohibits mass mailings or distributions at public expense which aggrandize any elected officer. The name, signature or photograph of an elected officer may be included in such materials only as permitted by the Code of Regulations, Title 2, 18091.
In order to promote open communication between Board members and the public, County Office of Education newsletters and other mass mailings may include a roster of all Board members names in accordance with law.
