The five-member Board of Education, elected to reflect the will of the community, is committed to providing the District's children with an exceptional educational opportunity.  

  • Elected by non-partisan ballot, each serving a four-year term.
  • Functions as a policy-making body according to the mandates of state law.

*A board member's elected term is a 4-year term and runs according to calendar year — beginning on January 1st after the November election and continuing through December 31st of the fourth year served. In alignment with that timing, the Board member names and bios linked on this page are updated on January 1st after the November election to reflect any effective changes to the Board. 

Newly elected Board members are officially sworn in at the Board's annual organizational meeting held in the January after the election. The date and time of the annual organizational meeting is traditionally established by the Board during the December regular meeting, while the remainder of the Board's 2024 regular meeting dates are approved by the Board at the January organizational meeting. As the meeting dates and times are approved, those details are posted to this page.
