Fayette's five school board members are committed to being good stewards of the district's resources, putting the needs of students first and helping all students succeed. The board, whose members are elected to four-year terms, determines districtwide policies, priorities, direction, and spending. The board generally gathers on the second and fourth Mondays, plus occasional special meetings. The first meeting is to plan the agenda; the second is to take action. (Schedule adjustments are made in months with holidays and other conflicts.) Community participation is welcome.
