Textbook Adoption Community Review

 

Curriculum/Textbook

Textbook Adoption Community Review

It is the legal responsibility of the Board of Education to approve all textbooks used as part of the educational program of this District. No such textbook will be approved which is not on a list duly filed in the Office of the Superintendent of Public Instruction. (2510)

The Superintendent shall develop administrative guidelines for the selection and maintenance of all educational and instructional materials and equipment. The guidelines shall include a plan for the review of instructional materials by staff and parents. (2520)

In an effort to engage parents and community members and following board policy, the Vandalia-Butler City Schools has created a section of our website detailing curriculum and textbooks being considered for use in our schools.  All items up for adoption will be posted on this site and made available for public review.  We welcome your feedback on these materials. 

To be a part of this process, community members can review the items for 21 days at the Board of Education offices, 500 S. Dixie Dr. during normal business hours (M-F 8:00 a.m. – 4:30 p.m.). Upon reviewing the materials, comments can be sent to Brandon Hartley, Director of Curriculum at brandon.hartley@vbcsd.com

We welcome your input as we continue to research new sources and types of classroom materials to provide our students with the very best educational experience.

BOE

Board of Education

Elected from the community by the community, the Board of Education is charged with charting a course for student achievement. Board members approve the policies and programs that bolster classroom learning and support the district’s athletics and arts programs. Their decisions ultimately affect the district’s long-term success and, by extension, the entire community.

To make the best, most educated decisions, the district’s board members spend countless hours of personal time on research, training, and seminars. They work with parents, educators, and other community members to ensure the district’s vision and direction meet stakeholders’ expectations. They ask informed questions about student programming and district finances. And they check that the district’s initiatives are in sync with the five-year strategic plan, VBCS 2016: Innovation Destination.

Board of Education Meeting

The Board of Education generally meets at 6 p.m. on the fourth Tuesday of the month for regular business meetings and on varying dates for work session meetings. Regular business meetings and workshop sessions are typically held at the Board of Education, (500 S. Dixie). 

Meeting times, dates, and locations are subject to change; call (937) 415-6400 to verify dates and times.

Board of Education Meeting Schedule, revised 1/8/2018

Addressing the Board

Vandalia-Butler City Schools Adopts “Next Generation” Board Management Technology

 

(Vandalia-Butler)  Vandalia-Butler City Schools is leveraging Cloud-based technology to radically improve the governance process while saving staff time and taxpayer dollars. The remarkably easy-to-use service will allow the organization to maximize the effectiveness of their board meetings with increased transparency, providing a basis for better and more open communication with the public, while dramatically improving productivity and saving thousands of dollars annually.

The board management solution, called BoardDocs Pro, is an efficient paperless agenda solution on the market. Leveraging state-of-the-art technology, BoardDocs Pro adds board management tools including Comprehensive Meeting Management, Policy Management and a Multi-purpose Library.

BoardDocs Pro uses a structured, collaborative Workflow that is specifically designed to meet the unique needs and legal requirements of public school boards. Further, the electronic distribution will not only save time and resources, but it will also provide unprecedented public access via the Vandalia-Butler City School’s Web site to agenda items and other board-related information. This process will allow interested parties to review information prior to meetings. After the meeting, individuals can review the agenda items and see what action the board took, complete with voting results. Documents associated with the meeting are automatically archived and can be accessed by date or by using the system’s comprehensive Search feature.

The new board management features can be accessed via the organization’s Web site at www.vbcsd.com. For questions regarding the governance initiative, contact Sally Owens, 937.415.6416.
