School board members interpret state law related to the school district, establish policies that will help the local schools and the students attending and are the overseers of the school district budget. The board hires and fires administrators and teachers and support personnel. School boards should develop long-term plans, set high instructional standards and establish assessments that review the quality of the district’s programs, faculty, staff and students. Board members must live within the district.
