The Board, as an agent of the state, must operate within the bounds of state and federal law
affecting public education. If the Board is to meet its inherent responsibility to the residents and
students of the community, it must work vigorously for the passage of new laws designed to
advance the cause of good schools and for the repeal or modification of existing laws that impede
this cause. To this end, the Board will act accordingly as follows:
► Seek both direct and indirect representation of its position on pending legislation with
appropriate state and federal legislators and legislative committees.
► Be knowledgeable of the annual legislative program of the Missouri and National School
► Work for the achievement of legislative objectives through the Missouri and National
School Boards' Associations and with other concerned groups.
