The School Board

The School Board represents the parents and citizens of our community. At Southeast Polk, school board directors are elected at-large and represent the entire school district. They receive no compensation for their service as a school board director. Each school board director is elected for a term of four years. Terms are staggered to ensure continuity of leadership.
