Framework for School Board Development

The Framework for School Board Development (also known as the Framework for School Board Governance) was adopted by the State Board of Education (SBOE) in January 1996. The Framework serves as a job description for school boards by listing the tasks a board should perform to provide the vision, structure, accountability, advocacy, and unity necessary to ensure effective governance of school districts.

In July 2012, the SBOE voted on some minor changes to this document. The changes
were initiated in an effort to reinforce more fully the board’s role as overseers of management, not as managers, and to reinforce the need of the board to work as a team.
