ITEM 119-110-R0503





Our Board Policy 705.1 includes the following paragraph:


2.  The Board shall conduct a self-study of its stewardship every three or four years. 

This process shall be elaborated in a separate procedural statement and periodically reviewed by the Board.  The heart of this process will be written assessments from all Board members.  The Board will determine the appropriate format of the self-assessments.  The Chair of the Board and the Commissioner will have responsibility for planning and reviewing with the full Board the specific arrangements for the meeting where this self-study will be brought to completion.  The Board may choose to use an external facilitator or consultant. 


I wish to inquire if there is interest by the board for the Chair to proceed in developing an evaluation of its stewardship as described in paragraph two, above.
