The Board of Education of Lewis-Palmer School District 38 desires to represent and steward the core values of the Lewis-Palmer community, with an emphasis on broad strategic initiatives. The Board is a Governance Board, and as such, is not directly involved in management of daily activities of the School District.
The Board of Education’s connection to the operational organization, its administration, faculty and staff, its methods and practices, and its achievements and conduct, is through a chief executive officer (CEO), titled Superintendent. In concert with the Superintendent, the Board establishes priorities for governance. The Superintendent and District administration have formulated operational policies and procedures designed to best service the District’s mission and vision. The Board governs by setting goals for the District, establishing policies to affect those goals, and approving a budget, all so that the Superintendent has clear guidance in running the District.
The Operational Policies listed here align with the District’s mission and vision statements and promote the following values:
At any given time, these policies may be in a state of review. Any questions regarding Board Governance or Operational Policies should be directed to Robert Foster, Director of Personnel and Student Services.
