The APS Board of Education is a group of citizens elected by voters to provide leadership and establish policies for the school district.

The seven-member board is elected at-large. Members serve four-year terms and receive no monetary compensation.

The board follows a policy governance model.






In June 2009, the APS Board of Education adopted a policy governance model, which guides the board's governance process, board-superintendent relationship, executive limitations and district goals.







Board meetings are generally held on the first and third Tuesdays of each month at 6 p.m. The board first meets at 5:30 p.m. for dinner.  The board meetings will follow one of these formats: General Business Meeting, Board Work Session, Board Workshop.

Regular Business meetings are generally held at the Mt. Massive Conference Room of the APS Professional Learning and Conference Center, 15771 E. 1st Ave. These meetings are open to the public.

Board Work Sessions and Workshops are generally held in the Mt. Massive Conference Room of the APS Professional Learning and Conference Center, 15771 E. 1st Ave.

Board Executive Sessions will take place at times and locations as announced on the APS website, APS Web Calendar and BOE Web Calendar.
