Board Of Education

The Meigs Local School District Board of Education is a group of five members who are elected to serve as the educational advocate of our community's youth.  The key roles and responsibilities of the Board are to:

  • Hire and evaluate the superintendent and treasurer.
  • Approve the school district's budget.
  • Establish goals and evaluate outcomes.
  • Adopt and evaluate policies.
  • Connect with the community.
  • Assure school district performance.

Who is Eligible?

To be eligible for election, a local school board candidate must be a citizen of the United States, a resident taxpayer of the district, a resident of the state for at least 30 days preceding election, registered to vote in the school district for at least 30 days preceding the election, and at least 18 years of age.

Making Board Decisions

A board of education is a governmental body, so it can take action only by a majority vote at a legally called public meeting. The individual board member's major responsibility is to study, evaluate, and, after due consideration, vote in the best interest of all students at such a meeting.
