Board of Education
The Marysville Board of Education is comprised of five elected members, each serving four year terms.  The terms are staggered so that two seats are voted on in one election, and then three seats in the election two years later. 
The Board of Education sets policy and direction for the Marysville Exempted Village School District, while providing supervisory oversight with regard to all contracts, employment, and development of educational programs.  The Board is also responsible for hiring and evaluating both the Superintendent and the Treasurer. 
To best perform these duties, the Board of Education has spent significant time focusing on board development and training. In May 2012, the Board developed a Governance Team Operating Protocol to enhance teamwork and professionalism among members of the Board and between the Board, Superintendent, and Treasurer.  Click on the link for the most recent revision of the Marysville Exempted Village Governance Team Operating Protocol.
In addition, the Board has developed goals aligned to the district strategic plan. An annual work-plan supporting these goals was originally approved in October 2014.  The work-plan for the 2018-2019 school year was approved at the September 2018 board meeting.  Board Goals.pdf
The Marysville Board of Education welcomes your questions and comments.  We are proud to serve our district and our community.  Together, we can provide opportunities for our students today that will prepare them to be leaders of tomorrow!
