Introducing the Board of Trustees
About the Board
The Board of Trustees has five board members. Each Board Member is elected by the community at large and serves a four-year term.
Each Board Member believes each student, parent/guardian, and staff are unique and deserve the very best and strive to support them in every way possible.
An effective school board plays an important watchdog role in keeping your local school on track, and setting policies that affect your child and your school. The school board sets the vision and goals for the school district, and holds the district accountable for results. One school board member cannot do the job alone. Effective school board members contribute their unique talents while collaborating and working as a team with other board members.
- Set the vision and goals for the district
- Adopt policies that give the district direction to set priorities and achieve its goals
- Hire and evaluate the superintendent
- Adopt and oversee the annual budget
- Manage the collective bargaining process for employees of the district
A typical school board meeting will include many business items, such as approving the school calendar, adopting curriculum, overseeing construction, and approving contracts with outside vendors. A successful school board will balance discussion of the seemingly tedious business of running the district while paying close attention to the district’s priorities for academic achievement.
