Board of Trustees

Local control of public education is one of the cornerstones of a free society. The Trustees of the West Ada School District are your elected representatives. They establish the policies that govern the school district and appoint the District Superintendent. Individual members have no authority to act on their own. Instead, Board action is made during formal sessions.

The Board is composed of five citizens, each representing a different geographic region of the district. They serve without pay in overlapping terms of four years.

Board of Trustees

The West Ada School Board is the policy making body of the school district, establishing the principles that govern the daily operation of the school system. Each of the five trustees represent specific geographic zones in the district. Individual members have no authority to act on their own but meet as a board in a formal session. They receive no salaries or benefits and are elected to a four-year term.

The community (parents and non-parents) is encouraged to attend school board meetings. The board offers numerous opportunities for patrons to serve on advisory committees and participate in policy making decisions.

Regular Meetings

Regular meetings are held on the second and fourth Monday of every month (there are exceptions please see calendar in SIMBLI). All meetings are held at the District Service Center. Special meetings are called when necessary. All meetings are open to the public.

State law permits the Board to go into executive session to discuss personnel, negotiations, property, or legal matters. No vote on any item may be taken in executive session.

Board agendas are posted at the District Office at least 48 hours before a regular meeting and 24 hours before a special meeting, as well as on the District website and designated posting areas.

Patron Input / Addressing the Board:

Meetings of the Board of Trustees follow a standard, published agenda. The Chairman of the Board presides at all meetings. Patrons who wish to comment on agenda items under discussion may do so by signing in with the Clerk of the Board prior to the beginning of the respective meeting. Open Meeting Law does not require public comments. 

When appearing before the Board, please state your name, and the item on the agenda you wish to discuss. No person may orally initiate charges or complaints against students or individual employees of the district. The Board's function is decision-making and the sentiments of the patrons assist in making those decisions.
