The Pleasant Hill School Board is comprised of school district residents that are individually elected by the community they serve.
Their major responsibility is setting policy. The board hires a superintendent who in turn hires staff to put policies into practice.
Board members work with the public as they establish the mission and direction of education.
A board member must be a skilled decision-maker and team player, a public-education advocate, a vital link between community and school, and a policy maker.
As a public employer, the board establishes policies that govern the recruitment, employment, supervision, evaluation and dismissal of employees.
Board members must also do the following:
· Establish budgets
· Set goals, evaluate progress toward those goals
· Guide collective bargaining
· Evaluate the superintendent
