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.
