Board of Education

The Board of Education is the governing body of the Whitehall District Schools with responsibility for developing policy to ensure the proper care, management and control of District affairs.

The Board consists of seven citizens elected by the voters of the District. Board members must be U.S. citizens and registered to vote in the District. Members serve six-year terms, with either two or three seats up for election in November of even-numbered years. 

In addition to developing and setting policy, the Board is responsible for several areas including hiring and evaluating the superintendent, approving budgets, expenditures, millage requests, educational programs, and facility and equipment purchases that support learning in the District. They also approve staff related issues such as staff hiring, resignations and terminations.
