The role of the school board is to ensure that school districts are responsive to the values, beliefs and priorities of their communities. Boards fulfill this role by performing five major responsibilities:

  1. Setting direction

  2. Establishing an effective and efficient structure

  3. Providing support

  4. Ensuring accountability

  5. Providing community leadership as advocates for children, the school district and public schools
