  2. The incoming member will be invited to attend Governing Board meetings which occur between election and the date the member takes office.

  3. The incoming member will be invited to meet with the Superintendent, Board President, and other administrative personnel to discuss services they perform for the Governing Board.

  4. The incoming member will be provided with a copy of the District's policy manual and other pertinent materials deemed helpful by the Superintendent.

  5. The incoming member may attend, at District expense, workshops for newly elected members.

  6. The incoming member will be invited to visit the school facilities.
