Board of Education
Thompson School District Board members are taxpayers, parents, business people, community residents and school volunteers. They all share a deep commitment to providing a sound education to all young people living in the district.
The seven members of the Board are elected at large from geographic areas for four year terms. They represent parents as well as residents without children in school. Board members serve without pay and contribute many hours each month to fulfilling their responsibilities.
As the policy-making body, the Board is responsive to community values and needs while acting within the framework of state and federal laws. Board members are responsible for:
- education planning and appraisal
- instructional programs and curriculum
- staffing and appraisal
- budget/finance resources
- school facilities
- communication with the public
The Board employs the Superintendent of Schools to provide leadership to staff, implement policy and manage the day-to-day operation of the district.
