Tonight, Galt Joint Union High School District trustees and Superintendent Daisy Lee are expected to sign a board protocol document.

The practice started three years ago when Lee was hired, but the concept is still new to the area.

"As superintendent, I want to have clear articulation with each board member on what are the commitments we need to have in order to work successfully as a team," Lee said.

Last year, shortly after being elected to their terms, Angela DaPrato and Mark Beck were among only the second group to sign the protocol. It was prepared by Lee for the first time in 2010 after she got the idea from the Association of California School Administrators.

"I put it on each January's board meeting as a reminder of our commitment to the district and to each other," Lee said. "Members of the board all agree that signing the protocol will affirm each other's commitment and work for the benefit of the district students, staff and community."

Neither the Galt Joint Union Elementary School District board nor Lodi Unified School District have a similar pledge to be signed by trustees, according to superintendents.

However, with one new board member, Galt elementary Superintendent Karen Schauer anticipates a meeting in February or March to visit board roles and responsibilities, and said this could result in some form of agreement or protocol.

Some past high school boards have struggled publicly to get along, with trustees calling each other names and refusing to work together.

    Maybe they should sign a pledge to bring the district student's test scores up and give them more than a 9% chance of getting into high school. More fat-cat garbage.
