About the Board

The APS Board of Education comprises seven members, people from all walks of life who devote their time to public service as elected officials. Board members serve alternating four-year terms. The next school board election is February 7, 2017 for districts 5, 6 and 7. To find out which school board member represents you, email boarded@aps.edu with your full street address.

The powers of the Board of Education lie in its action as a public body. Although a member of a board of education is a public officer, that person has no authority or power individually. By law, the Board of Education is charged with the employment of the superintendent, making policies and approving and oversight of the district’s $1.3 billion budget. The board and its individual members do not address personnel issues other than those related specifically to the superintendent. The board works with the superintendent to shape the strategic direction of the district based on four district goals.

Each year, board members vote on who will serve as officers – president, vice president and secretary. They also select members who are not officers to serve as heads of the standing committees of the Board of Education.
