EDUC 3013 Governance Quiz Section 1: 1. The local school boards obtain their authority from the Colorado Constitution to govern the schools in a district.

The Boulder Valley School Board is primarily responsible for the selection of the superintendent of schools, the development of overall policy for the school district and individual schools, and the declaration of objectives and long-range goals. The board is responsible to act with the interests of the students, the schools, and the taxpayers in mind. They also approve graduation requirements, set curriculum, and determines the employees of the school district. 3.

Garcia is currently the superintendent of the Boulder Valley School District, and has been since 2000. Dr. Chris King was elected to take over this position beginning July 1, 2007. 5.
