School boards.

LAKE COUNTY

School board members play a vital role in our communities. The school board is the governing body of a school district, and members are the only elected officials within an individual school district who have a say in the daily operations of that school district. School board members represent local citizens on education and school-related issues. Duties of a school board include:

  • Hire, fire and evaluate superintendent 

  • Adopt and oversee school corporation budget

  • Manage contracts with employees

  • Set the vision and goals for the school corporation

  • Adopt school corporation policies

  • Determine school expansions or closures

  • Approves various aspects of the school corporation's daily operations, including the school calendar and curriculum

BECOME A 2020 SCHOOL BOARD CANDIDATE!

School board positions are nonpartisan, meaning candidates are not associated with one political party. Each school district has unique requirements for becoming a school board candidate. Contact the Lake County Board of Elections office to learn more! 219-755-3795
