I.  Mission, Legal Structure, and System of Governance


            A.  Statement of Philosophy


The School Committee needs some policies about it own operation.  These will be different from bylaws, which are, in effect, rules.


What goes here are statements of Committee purpose, and provisions for matters like induction of Committee members, in-service development of Committee members, code of ethics for the Committee as a group and individually, and the Committee’s attitude toward policy development.  The Committee’s intent makes a great deal of difference in what it ultimately does and how it does it.
