The board of education is a volunteer representative body elected by the registered voters of the local public school district. Become a school board member if you are:

  • Passionate about supporting public education

  • Motivated by the best interests of all children in your community

  • Committed to listen and collaborate with other leaders

  • Trusting in the democratic process

The school board governs the school district and provides leadership and advocacy for public education. School boards are charged with making decisions in the best interest of the entire district. Learn more about School Board Basics.
