About Your Board of Education

As elected representatives of the citizens of the School District of Washington, the seven-member Board of Education serves as the governing body for the community's public school system. The school board sets district policies, selects the superintendent of schools, adopts the annual budget and determines the tax rate.
 

An annual school board election is held in April. Board members serve three-year overlapping terms with two or three members elected each year. School board members, who receive no salary, are committed and concerned citizens who devote countless hours working on behalf of children and the educational interests of School District of Washington residents.

Board Meetings

The Board of Education generally meets on designated Wednesday evenings during the school year and monthly during the summer. Board meetings are held in the Board Room on the second floor of the District Office, 200 Locust Street, at 7 p.m. The community is welcome and encouraged to attend.
 

Board meetings are open to the public. Executive session meetings, which are closed to the public in accordance with Missouri Sunshine Law, are scheduled as required and held only for certain student, personnel, property and legal matters.

Addressing the Board

District residents are welcome to share their views with the Board of Education during the public comments forum following the start of each regular meeting.
