Your publicly elected School Board provides local educational leadership that is in the best interests of all children. It contributes hundreds of hours each year to education-related issues. Its major duties are to set policies and priorities for the district’s operation; upon recommendation, hire personnel; and establish the district’s budgets.
All School Board members are publicly elected to a six-year term in the November (even-year) general election. Voting takes place in precincts for your state and national elections.
