The five Board of Education members are elected at large by voters of the district to serve four-year terms. In addition, a selection process involving high school students determines a non-voting student representative who sits on the Board to represent students.
Among its many duties, the Board adopts the annual budget and approves all expenditures; establishes district policy; authorizes employment of personnel; approves curriculum textbooks and courses of study; and makes decisions on all contracts.
The Superintendent is the chief executive officer of the district and serves as Secretary to the Board of Education.
Regular meetings of the Board of Education are normally held on the first and third Tuesdays of each month in the boardroom of the district's Education Center, 10331 Stanford Avenue, beginning at 7 p.m. Special meetings may be called when necessary; the agenda, location and time will be announced in advance.
