School Board Member Job Description

Serving on American school boards is a vital and important aspect of our democracy. The governance of our local school boards by democratically elected men and women remains at the heart of our democracy and public education system.

So what is the "job description" of a school board member? What does he or she actually do? Board of Education members are volunteers who represent the public's voice in Public Education. They provide citizen governance for what the public schools need to ensure that our students get the best education available for the tax dollar spent. Effective school board members contribute their unique talents while collaborating and working as a team with other board members and their superintendent.

The Board of Education's primary responsibilities are to:

*Set the vision and goals for the District

*Adopt policies that give the District direction to set priorities and achieve its goals.

*Hire and Evaluate the Superintendent

* Adopt and oversee the annual Budget

For more information on these responsibilities, please refer to the Revised School Code, which is available at
