About the Board

The Evergreen Public Schools Board of Directors is a key part of the "public" in public education. District voters elect the five board members to represent the public's views on how education should be governed at the local level.

Each board member serves a four-year term, and together, they are responsible for establishing the district's goals and policies and are the governing body on adoption of school budgets and all fiscal matters. It's the job of the superintendent, who represents the board, and the district staff to carry out the board's wishes.

The board welcomes and encourages public participation during its meetings. Members believe that good schools and the community nourish each other and that active citizen interest guarantees the excellence of public schools.
