School Board
  • The Alexandria City School Board is a nine-member elected body that adopts policy for the daily operation of schools and sees that school laws are properly explained, enforced and observed. The City is divided into three voting districts, and three Board Members are elected from each district. Each member serves a three-year term.  The School Board Chair receives $17,000 and Board Members receive $15,000 per year.

To accomplish this goal, we will make policy, budget and leadership decisions that are aligned with our Vision and Strategic Plan; and we will communicate with and involve stakeholders actively and transparently.
