PUBLIC EDUCATION: Our Most Important Infrastructure.

School Board members are elected local officials who volunteer to be part of a board that oversees and sets
policy for a public school district’s affairs, personnel, finances and properties. Local control of school districts
is the foundation of school governance; a well functioning school board is an example of democracy in action.
