The CUSD Board of Education
The District is governed by a five-member Board of Education (Board) whose primary function is to act as the District's policy-making body. It establishes the District's goals and policies and is charged with ensuring a quality educational program for students in grades TK through eighth in accordance with state law and input from the community. The Board also engages in a number of oversight roles. Each Board Member is elected by the community at large and serves a four-year term.
The Board delegates the administration of the District to a professional administrative staff headed by the Superintendent. Action can only be taken when the Board is in formal session with a majority of its members present; individual Board Members do not have the power to act independently in the name of the Board.
