Role and Policies


What is the Board of Trustees?

The Board of Trustees is a policy-making body which operates within the laws of the State of California and El Dorado County.  Each board member is elected for a four-year term; terms of office are staggered with elections held every two years. The Board is responsible for approving the district’s budget and adopting all policies as well as the curriculum.  The authority of the Board is as a whole and no board member may act as an official of the district, except when the Board meets in a regular or a special session.  The Board of Trustees is elected to represent all of the people of the school district.  In making its decisions, the Board is guided by what is in the best interest of the students and the entire district.

The Board President and Clerk are selected on a rotating basis during the organizational meeting held in December.
