The school board serves as a link between schools and the public, representing the citizens of the school district.

Board members make decisions on a wide range of issues, such as hiring and evaluating a superintendent and treasurer, setting district policy, planning student services, goal-setting and long range planning, developing curriculum, establishing budgets and creating community relations programs. A board member should be a skilled decision maker; however, decisions are only made by the board as a whole at a public meeting.  No one member has the independent authority to speak for the board.

Members of the Board of Education are elected to serve four-year terms. Their terms are staggered to provide continuity on the board.
