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.
