The officers of the School Board are a chairman and vice chairman. The chairman and the vice chairman are elected annually at the organizational meeting of the School Board.


School Board Chairman


The duties of the chairman are to preside at all meetings of the School Board, to perform such other duties as may be prescribed by law or by action of the School Board, and to sign all legal documents approved by the School Board.


The chairman, as a member of the School Board, has a vote on all matters before the School Board which come to a vote, but does not have an additional vote as chairman in case of a tie.



 The vice chairman, if present, shall preside in the absence of the chairman, and is empowered to act in all matters in case of the absence or inability of the chairman to act or as provided by resolution of the School Board. If neither the chairman or vice-chairman is present, a majority of Board members present, if they constitute a quorum, shall elect one from among themselves to chair the meeting.
