What is a Policy Board?
Policy boards are the governing body of teacher centers. Education Law 316 requires the policy board include a majority of teachers appointed by the collective bargaining agent. Policy boards also include individuals designated by the Center's LEA, a representative from higher education, a parent representative and a representative from business. The board composition of a majority of teachers emphasize the philosophy for the creation of teacher centers which is "teachers teach teachers."
Policy boards are responsible for establishing the mission, goals, and strategic plan for the center. A director is appointed and they collaborate on the financial needs of the center, as well as, approve all professional learning offered by the center. Since Intercounty is a consortium, there are policy board members from each of the schools/districts.
