What is the Governing Board?

 

The Governing Board is a five-member body of citizens elected by the voters of the school district and charged with ensuring the district meets the best interests of the students and the school system. Members serve a four-year term. All members serve without pay.

The Governing Board serves as the school district's policy maker in accordance with state and federal law. In addition, board members adopt the budget, approve personnel, curriculum, and other district business matters. The board hires the superintendent of schools and oversees the superintendent's duties and performance.

Board of education meetings are conducted on the first and third Tuesday of each month. Meetings are held in the Board Room, 5601 North 16th Street, and scheduled school locations at 6 p.m. The locations and agendas for each meeting are posted in the school offices and the district office on the Monday prior to the board meetings. Agendas are also available on this Webste.

The Governing Board values maintaining communication with all constituents and welcomes community attendance and input.
