School Board

Beginning June 13, 2022, there is a new monthly meeting format for the regularly scheduled Board meetings. The Board meeting will start at 5:30 p.m. The Board will then move into a closed session. The open session will begin at approximately 6:30 p.m. for student recognition, public comment, and general business.

The Board of Trustees consists of seven members who act as our District’s policy-making body. Trustees work with the Superintendent and staff to set the direction of the school district with the education and well-being of school children as its primary focus.

Board members are elected at-large by the citizens in MISD to three-year, staggered terms. They not only represent the public, but also translate the needs of students into policies, goals and strategies that reflect the standards and values of the community as a whole.
