The Board acts as a court of appeal for staff members, students and the public on issues involving board policy or implementation of policy.

Board of Education Members

The Board has five members elected to alternating four-year terms. Elections are held every two years. Board members are elected through a general election, but represent a specific area of the county which is called their representative district.

Board members are not paid. They volunteer 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.
