Both the BC School Trustees’ Association, and the District’s own Bylaw 9210, part 2 specify that Trustees are to be involved in all stages of policy development. It has been said at the Board table that “involvement” is now through a decision of the previous Board to outsource to senior administration. Creation of a Policy Review and Development Committee has been proposed, and dismissed. (One Trustee remarked on policy development through social media. Since the public has no powerful opportunity to be part of the policy process, that might be one way to make policy development more transparent. )
