Board of Education

SB 2017

The school district is governed by a seven-member Board of Education, elected by residents of the district. The Board meets on the second Monday of each month at 6:30 p.m. at the Early Childhood Center in Room 8, 113 Line Street.

It is the goal of the Excelsior Springs School District Board of Education to foster an open line of communication with district patrons. With that in mind, it is important for the public to understand the role and responsibilities of a school board member.

The Board of Education serves four primary functions associated with school district operations:

► Hire a superintendent

► Help establish a district vision

► Establish policy

► Oversee district finances

All comments or concerns with the district should start at the classroom level and work up through the chain of command – teacher first, then principal, Central Office administration and finally the Board of Education after all other avenues have been exhausted.
