The job of the Board of Education is to set policies for operating the schools and to employ staff to carry out its policies. It adopts a budget and oversees how it is spent. The board hires the superintendent to serve as its chief executive officer and acts upon the recommendations of the superintendent.

The board also sets goals for the district. Goals may relate to the curriculum, student achievement, teaching, buildings and equipment and funding for education. 

The board consists of seven members who are elected at-large for four-year staggered terms during elections held in April of odd-numbered years. Board members serve without pay.

A list of meeting dates and locations for the year is available upon request and on the District website at www.usd475.org. The location of the board meeting is announced in the Daily Union and on KJCK radio as well as USD 475-TV Cox Channel 20. The board president or the superintendent may also call a special meeting if necessary.

The board welcomes you to its meetings. As a taxpayer and patron of this school district, you are part owner in the public school system. The board of education wants to be responsive to you and all members of the community it represents.
