Our Board of Education serves four‐year terms in its position of public trust as elected officials. Each member represents a separate geographical area of the county. The Board brings the diverse voices of their constituents together to set educational goals and address specific student issues. The Board provides leadership on emerging educational issues and legislative requirements in conjunction with its state mandated functions. Members participate as leaders in community activities representing the interests of education. The Board welcomes the public to its meetings, typically held at 12:30 PM the first Tuesday of every month.
