Board Members

Role of the School Board

The school board consists of seven citizens who are elected at large for three-year terms. They are responsible to the voters and act under the directions and restrictions of state law. They serve without pay. Board members have no power to act individually in the name of the board. Action can be taken only when the board is meeting in regular session with a majority of its members present. Roberts Rules of Order is the parliamentary authority for procedure.

Subcommittees

There are three subcommittees of the Board of Education. Each committee has three sitting Board members (one of those acting as Chair) who are responsible for overseeing the committee’s tasks.

Meetings are held at various times throughout the month for initial discussion on school district topics. Agenda items discussed at these committee meetings are presented to the full Board at future Board of Education meetings. Although these meetings are open to the public, Personnel Services meetings can take place in Closed Session which is closed to the public.
