Board of Education


The Board of Education is comprised of seven residents elected to serve three year terms.  These terms are overlapping in order to ensure continuity.  At the end of a term, a member may continue service to the community by being re-elected to the Board for another three year term.  State law does not limit the number of terms a member may serve.  School Board members receive no compensation for their public service.
