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.
