About the School Board
The School Board governs District 196 and develops policies to manage district affairs and support student education. They hire the superintendent, approve staff appointments, set the school levy, and ensure facilities and equipment are available for effective teaching.
District voters elect, at large, seven residents who are United States citizens, at least 21 years of age upon taking office, and not registered as a convicted sex offender. Members are elected to four-year terms on the November general election day in odd-numbered years.
