Board of Education

Lake Shore Board of Education

The Board of Education is a seven member legislative body elected by residents of the school district. Lake Shore Board members must develop policies and make tough decisions on complex educational and social issues which impact the entire community.

The Board includes a president, vice-president, secretary, treasurer and three trustees. These positions are elected annually by the Board during their organizational meeting in January. Regular meetings are held the 4th Monday of every month at 7:30 pm unless otherwise indicated on our District Calendar.
