Bylaws of the Board
Code of Ethics

As a member of the Kenai Peninsula Borough School District Board of Education I will strive to improve public education, and to that end I will:

  • Remember always that my first and greatest concern must be the educational welfare of all the students attending the public schools.
  • Attend all regularly scheduled Board meetings and other meetings, insofar as possible, and become informed concerning the issues to be considered at those meetings.
  • Recognize that I should endeavor to make policy decisions only after full discussion at publicly held Board meetings.
  • Render all decisions based on the available facts and my independent judgment, and refuse to surrender that judgment to individuals or special interest groups.
  • Encourage the free expression of opinion by all Board members, and seek systematic communications between the Board and the public.
  • Work with other Board members to establish effective Board policies and to delegate authority for the administration of the association to the Superintendent.
  • Communicate to other Board members and the Superintendent expressions of member and public reaction to Board resolutions, policies and programs.
  • Inform myself about current educational issues by individual study and through participation in programs providing needed information, such as those sponsored by my state and national school boards association.
  • Support the employment of those persons best qualified to serve as staff, and insist on a regular and impartial evaluation of all staff.
  • Avoid being placed in a position of conflict of interest, and refrain from using my Board position for personal or partisan gain.
  • Take no private action, other than through proper channels, that will compromise the Board or administration, and respect the confidentiality of information that is privileged under applicable law.
  • Avoid, during public meetings and during the performance of public duties, the use of abusive, threatening or intimidating language or gestures directed at colleagues, citizens or staff.
  • Not exhibit any conduct which discredits myself or the School Board or otherwise impairs my ability to perform School Board duties or represent the School Board in a manner consistent with the integrity and trustworthiness expected by the public.
  • Avoid making disparaging remarks, in or out of School Board meetings, about other members of the Board.
  • Refuse to surrender judgment to any individual or group at the expense of the District as a whole.
  • Be continuously guided by what is best for all students of the District.

My signature below indicates that I have read and agree to abide by the KPBSD Board of Education Code of Ethics.
