PLATTE COUNTY SCHOOL BOARD
We believe that students in Platte County School District #2 should profit from their learning experience so that, using their acquired knowledge they can, with guidance, give responsible direction to their own lives as contributing members of society. To accomplish this, we must help develop each individual to their fullest in the District’s common core of knowledge and skills.
Developing community/parental support and involvement in this process will offer the best education to students in Platte County School District #2.
The mission of Platte County School District #2 is to improve the knowledge, skills, and attitudes of each learner, empowering individuals to grow into responsible, productive, global citizens.
Platte County School Board of Trustee members are taxpayers, parents, business people, community residents and school volunteers. They all share a deep commitment to providing a sound education to all young people living in the district.
The five members of the Platte County School District #2 Board of Trustees are elected at large from within the district geographic areas for four year terms. They represent parents of district students as well as residents without children in school. Board members serve without pay and contribute many hours each month to fulfilling their responsibilities.
As the policy-making body, the Board is responsive to community values and needs while acting within the framework of state and federal laws. Board members are responsible for:
- Education planning and appraisal
- Instructional programs, curriculum and assessment
- Budget/finance resources
- School facilities
- Communication with the public
The Board employs the Superintendent of Schools to provide leadership to staff, implement policy and manage the day-to-day operation of the district.
