2224 - Consultants
The Board of Education, aware of the benefits to be derived, authorizes and encourages the administrative and supervisory staff to use professional consultants from the State Department of Education, colleges, universities, and other sources, when such consultative services will be helpful in the improvement of the instructional program in its schools. All consultants must be approved by the Superintendent, and cases involving honorarium and/or other costs must be within the approved Board of Education budget parameters. Board approval must be secured prior to the invitation and arrangement for visitation by such person or persons, if budgeted funds are not available.
The Board will be provided at year-end a report describing each consultant, their purpose and their fees.
