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.

 

 

 

 

 

On February 16, 2021, the APS Board of Education adopted a results and limitations governance model. This model describes the Board governance process, Board-superintendent relationship, executive limitations and district results. There are many reasons why the Board adopted this model, including being more strategic, more student-focused and to increase community engagement.
