The School Board of Education


The Board of Education is composed of five members, elected at-large. A president, vice president and secretary are selected from the board membership by a majority of the voting members.

Board of Education meetings are generally held on the first and third Tuesdays of each month except July. The meetings are held at the Educational Services Center, 610 Alta Vista Street, Santa Fe, NM 87505.  The meetings usually consist of an Executive session beginning at 4:30 p.m. and a regular business meeting at 5:30 p.m.; the latter which is open to the public.

Those wishing to address the board are asked to fill out a public forum sign-in sheet, located in the doorway of the board room, prior to the beginning of the meeting.

Board meetings are held the first and third Tuesday of each month.  An annual schedule of meetings is approved by the Board of Education at the last meeting in June and it is posted to the district website.  All meeting agendas are posted 72 hours prior to each meeting.  Regular Board meetings are open to the public.
