Policy 1805 - OPEN GOVERNMENT TRAININGS

It is the policy of the Highline School Board to recognize the value of meaningful, informed public participation in district deliberations and the need to conduct its affairs in a transparent manner.  All board directors will participate in trainings regarding:  1) the Open Public Meetings Act; 2) the Public Records Act; and 3) Public Records Retention, within ninety (90) days of taking the oath of office following election or appointment.  After the initial trainings, board directors will participate in refresher trainings on these subjects every four years that they hold office in order to remain current with new developments in open government law. 

Board directors will document their completion of required trainings.  The Superintendent or designee will file and maintain the documentation in the district.
