The Board serves as the liaison between the community and the school to develop and to sustain quality education. It has the ultimate responsibility for (1) formulation of decisions on the general policies to be adopted in the school system, (2) the employment of teaching and other personnel for the school system, (3) the preparation and presentation to the community of proposed capital building programs, and (4) preparation of the annual budget to be adopted by the community.

Public meetings of the Board of Education are generally held on the second and fourth Tuesday of every month. Additional sessions may be held as needed. All meetings begin at 8:15 PM in the Edgemont High School Large Group Instruction room. The approved schedule of Board meetings is posted on the District website.

You are encouraged to attend Board meetings. Notices of meetings, including budget hearings, specific agendas, and meetings of Board-appointed Citizen Advisory Committees, are posted on all District websites.

The Board strives to make decisions that are responsive to the needs of the community. Accordingly, Board members welcome comments on matters under discussion and any suggestions on matters that might merit consideration.
