  1. Will you expect there to be a shared articulated vision and long-term goals?
  2. Will you expect school leadership to advance the school district or manage it?
  3. Will you expect progress (outside of test scores) that demonstrates best practice and overall positive impact?
  4. Will you step down from the school board if you breach ethics policies adopted by the school district (modeled after national and state school board’s associations)?
  5. Will you model humanity, humility, and kindness for all kids?
