Superintendent Stephen Murley and three board members recently met with representatives from Denver-based Charney Associates. The school board will discuss on Tuesday whether to hire the company as a consultant.
Murley said the company would help the district with things like how to write policies and understanding the roles of board members.
The school board follows the Policy Governance model developed by John Carver that defines a board’s role in an organization, but Iowa City is mostly self-taught, Murley said.
Charney Associates provided the board with examples of packages it offers, which run from $5,900 to $13,464.
