The Rivendell Interstate School Board members are committed to the School District mission and goals. Every member of the Board is completely conversant with the philosophy and principles that are the foundation of school district. The school Board applies this mission and related goals to decision making.
The School Board is committed to maintaining continuity in quality education to trust and be trusted by the citizenry of all four-member towns making up the one school district. Board members are respectful of the uniqueness of each community and at the same time committed to the formation of a unified school district. They understand the importance of open and honest communication and the desirability of public engagement.
In addition, School Board members understand the legal requirements to function as a solidified legal entity and not as independent agents. Therefore, the School Board acts upon decisions and renders direction to the school district as a whole.
