Meet the Board

Our school district has seven dedicated community members who volunteer their time and energies to represent the public and translate the public's values and expectations into policies, plans, and goals. Individual members are elected by the local community and hold meetings typically on the second Thursday most months of the school year.


Please Note: All school board meetings will be held at Brook Park Elementary in the Multipurpose Room, unless otherwise referenced.
