The School Board also hires the Superintendent; approves staff hiring's, resignations, terminations and leaves of absence; sets the annual local school levy; approves expenditures; approves educational programs; and ensures proper facilities and equipment are available to support teaching and learning in the District. The School Board is also highly engaged with the community that they serve and their continual focus is on the educational success of our students, and continued growth of our school community.The seven board members are elected at large during the November general election in even-numbered years. Four board members are up for election one year and the other three are up for election two years later.
