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 the Superintendent, and develops local education vision, district goals, and policy within the limits of the State Education Code.
