The school board is made up of seven citizens elected at large by voters in the district. Members are elected to four-year overlapping terms, with elections being held every two years. At the end of a four year term, members may run for re-election to successive terms. Voting takes place at the general elections in November, and terms begin the first Monday in January thereafter.
Every year, at its first meeting in January, the school board holds an organizational meeting to elect officers and settle other routine business. The superintendent is an ex-officio member of the board who facilitates the work of the school board and is responsible to the board for providing leadership to the school district and carrying our board directives.
