Board of Education

Because the board is a governmental body, it can take action only by a majority vote at a legally called meeting. The individual board member’s major responsibility is to study, evaluate and, after consideration, vote in the interests of all students. School Board members are guardians of the public trust and through the policies they make, they establish the standards and philosophy by which district schools are run. Their ultimate responsibility is to determine the criteria used to evaluate how well the schools are run.

The key roles and responsibilities of the school board are to:

  • Hire and evaluate the superintendent
  • Approve the district budget
  • Establish goals and evaluate outcomes
  • Adopt and evaluate policies
  • Delegate administrative responsibilities
  • Communicate with the community
Board meetings will be held on the first and third Monday in March; the third Monday in July, August, September, October, November, December, January, May, June; the second Monday in February and April. Meetings will begin at 5:30 p.m. Below are the tentative board meeting dates:
  • July 18, 2022
  • August 15, 2022
  • September 19, 2022
  • October 17, 2022

Board Policy

District Purpose Statement
“The Maquoketa Community School District, in full partnership with the community, is committed to providing life-long learning opportunities which enable all learners to develop their potential. All students will learn to communicate, work both independently and with others, and manage change.

Philosophy
The Board of Education believes that it is the responsibility of the schools to provide maximum learning opportunities for all the children in the community, and for adult members of the community when a need is identified. There shall be no discrimination against any student because of race, color, religion, physical disability, national origin, marital status, gender, sexual orientation, gender identity, or social class.

The Board of Education further believes that all students can succeed.

Students should be active participants in the learning process. It is the function of the educational program to provide students with opportunities for obtaining the skills, knowledge, and orientations, which enable them to be contributing members in their families and their communities. For some students, this will mean thorough preparation for further formal education. For others, it will mean basic general information plus the attainment of certain vocational skills and experience.

For more information, please see the full MCSD Board Policy Manual.
