The board of education is a seven-member, elected body tasked with formulating general district policies, employing and advising the superintendent, employing personnel, making specific school decisions, and orienting new members. The board convenes every month in open, public meetings to discuss school and district business and hear citizens' concerns. A schedule of these meetings is posted publicly in advance of these meetings. Along with the agendas and minutes, this schedule is available on the district's website. Each board member is elected to a four-year term, for which he or she is not compensated. Board members must reside in Community High School District 155's boundaries.
