The school board is here to serve and govern the school district. The school board is made up of seven individuals representing the parents and citizens of our community. Members are elected at-large by residents of our district. They receive no compensation for their service. Each school board member is elected for a term of four years. Terms are staggered to ensure continuity of leadership. School board members are elected by their local communities in an election held the first Tuesday after the first Monday of November in odd-numbered years. The next regular school election will take place on the following date: Tuesday, Nov. 7, 2023.
The role of the school board is to:
-Set policy for the school district.
-Select an executive officer and delegate to that officer the authority for carrying out the policies, plans and administrative details.
