Policy 1105 - Membership

The District is governed by a Board of Trustees consisting of 5 members, each member to represent a different trustee zone unless a trustee was appointed at-large to fill a Board vacancy. The Board’s powers and duties include the broad authority to adopt and enforce all necessary policies for the management and government of the public schools. Except as otherwise provided by law, trustees shall hold office for terms of four (4) years, until year in which trustee’s term expires.

All trustees shall participate on an equal basis with other members in all business transactions. Official action by Board members must occur at a duly called and legally conducted meeting. A meeting of the Board means convening to make a decision or to deliberate toward a decision on any matter.

School board members, as individuals, have no authority over school affairs or personnel, except as provided by law or as authorized by the Board.
