What Do Board Members Do?
A school board, working with its community, has four major leadership responsibilities and an unlimited amount of decisions to make on a wide range of issues.
- To envision the district’s education future and set goals and define strategies to guide the district toward that vision.
- To hire a superintendent who will effectively implement the board’s policies and manage the district to accomplish its goals.
- To monitor and assess the district’s performance and to keep the public informed and engaged.
- To advocate for students and public schools within the community, state and national levels.
