  • Board Approved: 04/13/05
  • Revised: 05/06/09

The Board is committed to assessing its own performance as a board in order to identify its strengths and areas in which it may improve its functioning.

To that end, the Board has established the following processes:

A committee of the Board shall be appointed in May to determine the instrument or process to be used in board self-evaluation. Any evaluation instrument shall incorporate criteria contained in these board policies regarding board operations, as well as criteria defining board effectiveness promulgated by recognized practitioners in the field.

The process for evaluation shall be recommended to and approved by the Board.

If an instrument is used, all board members will be asked to complete the evaluation instrument and submit them to the Board Chair.

A summary of the evaluations will be presented and discussed at a board session scheduled for that proposed. The results will be used to identify accomplishments in the past year and goals for the following year.
