Board of Trustees
The Board of Trustees is elected by the citizens to be legally responsible for the education of the children in the district. Trustees make all major decisions regarding school policy, curriculum, expenditures, and expansion. It is the Board’s responsibility to provide tax monies for maintenance and operation of the schools and to submit bond issues to be voted on by the people of the district for construction of school facilities.
- The Board also elects the superintendent as its chief executive officer.
- The Board has complete and final control over local school matters, subject to limitations imposed by law and regulations established by the state Commissioner of Education.
- The School Board acts officially only as a group. No one acts in the name of the Board except when authorized by Trustees to do so.
