Board of Education

Stillwater Township
Board of Education

The board’s major responsibility is setting policy. The board hires a superintendent who in turn hires staff to put policies into practice.

The chief executive is accountable to the board for managing the district according to board policies. 

Because they serve the community, board members must work with the public as they establish the mission and direction of education. It’s up to the board to engage the community in public education.

A board member must be a skilled decision-maker and team player, a public-education advocate, a vital link between community and school, and a policy maker. 

As a public employer, the board establishes policies that govern the recruitment, employment, supervision, evaluation and dismissal of employees.



Board members must also do the following:

  • Establish budgets
  • Set goals, evaluate progress toward those goals
  • Ask voters to approve bond measures and local option levies for facilities and operations
  • Guide collective bargaining
  • Choose transportation systems
  • Evaluate the superintendent, college president or chief executive
