The Board of Trustees is the elected body of the citizens who govern the operation of the Robla School District. There are five members on the board.
It is the responsibility of the Board of Trustees to conduct the business and programs of the school district in accordance with the Constitution of the State of California, the California Education Code, the California Administrative Code, and certain other applicable rules and regulations.
The Board makes major policy decisions for the District in the areas of budgeting and finance, staffing, curriculum, and advance planning. Policies adopted by the Board of Trustees are put into effect by the school system's administrative staff.
The Board of Trustees has no power to act individually in the name of the Board. Action can be taken only when the Board is meeting in formal session with a majority of its members present. Under this sound principle, members can reserve judgment on each matter until they have had an opportunity to hear the recommendations of the Superintendent and discuss it with other Board members.
The Board recognizes that it has an obligation to the people of the Robla School District to plan the best possible program of education and to expend revenues wisely. The Board also recognizes it has a unique opportunity to represent the schools to the community and the community to the schools.
For these reasons, the Board encourages residents to make their desires known and to take an active part in the educational affairs of the Robla School District.
