Board of Education
A five member Board of Education oversees the District. The members are elected at-large and serve for a maximum of two consecutive four year terms. Board Members are accessible to the community and integrate public input into their deliberations and decision-making. The Board acts in the best interests of all students, reviews and approves the budget, authorizes expenditures, employs all personnel (including the Superintendent), and develops local education vision, district goals, and policy within the limits of the State Education Code.
The Board generally meets on the second and fourth Wednesday of every month at 7:00 pm in the Council Chambers at City Hall, 120 Vista Avenue. Agenda and backup materials are posted on Mondays preceding a Board meeting. Meetings are open to the public. Minutes are posted after they are approved by the Board.
School Board Members serve as liaisons on several committees or boards of other support groups such as the City-District Liaison Committee, Piedmont Educational Foundations, each of the Parents’ Clubs, Curriculum Council, Athletic Boosters, and the Special Education District Advisory Committee, to name a few.
