Board


What is the Board of Education?

The Board of Trustees is a five-person policy-making body which operates within the laws of the State of Oregon. Each board member is elected for a four-year term; terms of office are staggered with elections held every two years. It is responsible for approving the district's budget and adopting all policies and curriculum. The authority of the Board is as a whole and no Board member may act as an official of the district except when the board meets in a regular or a special session. The Board of Trustees is elected to represent all of the people of the school district. In making its decisions, the Board is guided by what is in the best interest of the entire district.

The Board Chair and Vice Chair are selected on a rotating basis during the organizational meeting held in July.
