The officers of the School Board are a chairman and vice‑chairman. The chairman and the vice‑chairman are elected annually in July at the organizational meeting of the School Board.

School Board Chairman
The duties of the chairman are to preside at all meetings of the School Board, to perform such other duties as may be prescribed by law or by action of the School Board, and to sign all legal documents approved by the School Board.

The chairman, as a member of the School Board, has a vote on all matters before the School Board which come to a vote, but does not have an additional vote as chairman in case of a tie.
