About the Board of Education
The Board of Education is composed of seven members elected to alternating four-year terms. Elections are held every two years. Board members are not paid and donate their time to serve the community. The Board chooses its officers in April. If a vacancy occurs, the Board names an appointee to serve until the next election.

To prepare children for the 21st century, we hold these beliefs

  • Working Together For Our Children: The best education of our children is the collaborative responsibility of students, their families, the school system and the community.
  • Learner Profile: We strive to produce students who are responsible citizens in our American democracy and in the global society at large, and who are knowledgeable in life skills that will serve them in the workplace and in their other adult roles.

Board of Education Goals /July 1, 2013 – June 30, 2016

Goal 1 – Every student, every day, will be provided challenging, interesting, satisfying, and engaging academic work that will lead to academic growth and achievement, and preparation for success in high school, career, college, and life.

Goal 2 – Every school will offer safe, caring, healthy, and secure learning environments for all students.

Goal 3 – All administrators, teachers, and staff will possess the skills to lead, teach, assess, and support students for success in the 21st Century and beyond.

Goal 4 – District financial resources will be efficiently and effectively used to support the mission of the district.
