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. The goals for the 2020-21 school year were approved at the August 2020 Regular Board Meeting:  2021-22 Board Goals
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!  
Community Coffees
In order to provide community stakeholders additional opportunities to share their thoughts, questions and/or concerns, Board members hold a monthly Community Coffee.  At each Community Coffee, there will be one or two Board members present.  

The meetings will be held from 9:00 AM to 10:00 AM at the Marysville Public Library. If weather permits, meetings will be outside at the Green Chair patio area.  If weather does not cooperate, Board members will be just inside the main entrance in the snack area on the right. 

 Community Coffee  Dates:

Dates for 2022 will be added to calendar at a later date. 

Community members can also contact the Board with questions, concerns, and/or suggestions via email at: [email protected]
