School Board


To assist in the process of making the mission and vision a reality, school board meeting agendas and information are posted on-line and through the district website.  BoardBook, a web-based software application is being used to extend district communications and transparency in district processes.

BoardBook assists the district by helping to streamline the preparation of board agenda materials.  It builds a searchable archive of meeting agenda resources and minutes.  It opens the door to electronic distribution of meeting materials, to web posting of finished documents and ultimately, to paperless meetings.

Strategic Plan


The ROCORI School Board is committed to the district mission.  In order to be Central Minnesota’s public education standard of excellence, the school board desires to make a difference today to create a better tomorrow for ROCORI’s students and communities.

One part of the district vision is to make the ROCORI Schools a focal point of the community through communications and connections that increase understanding, accountability, interest and involvement. The board’s intended direction is to provide consistent, honest and timely communications between and within staff and community.



Much of the work of the ROCORI School Board is conducted through the various standing committees of board assignments.  Each of the members of the school board has a portfolio of committee assignments and/or serve as a representative of the board to an organization related to the school district.  Committee assignments are an important part of the functions of the school board and school district

ROCORI School Board meetings are recorded and broadcast on Tri-City Cable local access Channel 10.  Most broadcasts of meetings air on Channel 10 the Wednesday following the meetings.  They are also made available on the ROCORI YouTube channel.

All regular school board meetings include the opportunity for Comments and Requests from Visitors.  This is part of the agenda which allows members of the public to offer comment to the school board and to participate in the school board meeting.
