Readings Open board meetings obviously enhance school-community relations and allow parents and other citizens to understand the issues encompassing the system’s schools as well as to air their concerns (Ornstein, 2011, p 210). The board must keep the school district solvent and get the most out of every tax dollar. The school district usually has a larger budget than any other aspect of local government (Ornstein, 2011, p 212).
