Board of Education

The Board of Education usually meets two Tuesdays each month. The seven members of the Board are elected by the qualified voters of the district to serve without remuneration for three-year terms.

All citizens are encouraged to take an active role in the development of our schools by attending the public Board meetings which are held in the Administration Building.

Special meetings are occasionally held; dates and locations of such meetings are announced on radio stations WAXB, WHUD, WLAD, and WPUT, and noted in the local newspaper.
