    The Board of Trustees consists of seven members elected to serve, without compensation, for staggered terms of three years each. Operating within the legal parameters of the state and federal constitutions, statutes, courts, and administrative agencies, the board is charged with the responsibility of providing the finest educational program possible for the students in the district. School trustees make all final decisions regarding school district priorities, policies, personnel, textbooks, expenditures, and growth management. Trustees adopt a budget that is necessary to maintain and operate the schools and submit bond issues to the citizens of the district to finance construction projects.  Additionally, the board employs and evaluates the superintendent of schools.
