Board of Education

The Jefferson County Board of Education is the policy-making body of the school district. Its powers and duties are set by state law. The Board is responsible for educational planning and evaluation, staffing and appraisal, school facilities, financial resources and communication. The Board acts as a court of appeal for staff members, students and the public on issues involving board policy or implementation of that policy.

The JCEA and District negotiating teams will meet on August 6 at 5 pm in the Board of Education Room at the Education Center.

Below is a link to the draft agreement distributed at the Wednesday, July 15 negotiation session. The bargaining teams reached agreement in principle on most of the language for a new negotiated agreement, but it is not a final agreement. The parties are not in agreement on the term of the agreement, and it must be ratified by the membership of JCEA and approved by the Board of Education.

Draft Agreement

Meeting dates and times will be updated and posted on Board Docs and should be consulted frequently as the meeting schedule may change.

Board of Education Members

Email the Board of Education

The Board is composed of five members elected to alternating four-year terms. Elections are held every two years. Board members are elected at large, but represent a specific area of the county - their representative district. Board members are not paid; they give freely of their time to serve the community. After each School Board election, the Board chooses its officers for the next two years. If a vacancy occurs, the Board names an appointee to serve until the next election.
