The Board meets on the first and third Monday of each month at 5:30 PM. All board meetings are open to the public and are held at the STC Partnership Center, 215 W. 9th Street, Tama, unless noted otherwise. Minutes of past meetings and agendas for upcoming meetings are regularly posted and links to pages for these items, and Board-related publications, are provided on the sidebar to the left of the page.
STC is governed by a five-member Board of Education. Directors are elected to serve staggered 4-year-terms. Maps showing director district boundaries are now available for download on the Director District Maps page.
Below are downloadable links for the current Board of Education policy.
One of the main purposes of the Board of Education is to write policy. Iowa Code (274.7 & 279.8) places the authority to develop and adopt policy for a school district in the hands of the school board. The state educational standards, which set the requirements for an accredited education program, require the board to adopt & maintain a policy manual. As well, the board must review its policies every five years.
Additionally, sections of the policy are available as individual categories and can be accessed below.
