We have a policy manual for both board and staff of our small NP that sat on the shelf for 3+ years gathering dust. As the new ED - I have found this manual and have been in the process of updating it with current office practices. But before we complete the update - I would like a professional to assist in a final review of the manual to provide outside perspective and expertise.
This policy manual is a gold mine for both board and staff to help guide daily operations and overall practices to ensure standards based excellence. I want to ensure this policy manual is the best it can be before unveiling it to the board and staff for the first time in 3+ years as most board and staff are unaware of its existence. Having outside guidance and expertise is essential as a final step in this process.
Established in 1982, the Menlo Park-Atherton Education Foundation (MPAEF) seeks to enable the Menlo Park City School District (MPCSD) to provide an exceptional education to students at Laurel, Encinal, Oak Knoll, and Hillview schools. Working with parents, local businesses, community members, and the District, we raise money to pay for high-quality teachers, a comprehensive educational program, and teaching innovation beyond what is possible with public dollars alone.
