Board Of Education

Board of Education

The Wayne County Board of Education consists of seven members, elected in districts to serve four-year terms. The superintendent is selected by the Board and serves as the Chief Executive Officer of the school district. While the board of education is responsible for setting policy, the superintendent and his administrative team manage the daily operations of the school district.

Unless specified, the Board meets monthly on the first Monday of each month. All monthly meetings and special called meetings are videotaped and livestreamed.
