Papillion-La Vista Board of Education
The Papillion-La Vista Board of Education
The Board of Education consists of six members elected by the residents of the Papillion-La Vista School District. Three members are elected every two years to serve four-year terms. Board of Education members are elected at large, which means each member represents the entire school district. Pictured above are the members of the Papillion-La Vista Board of Education.
The Board of Education is responsible for representing the community in governing the schools. Some of the Board’s responsibilities are to:
•Establish policy. Policies are implemented and supervised by the school administration.
•Employ and evaluate the superintendent of schools.
•Approve the appointment of teachers and staff members upon the superintendent’s recommendation.
•Secure money to operate schools, including authorizing expenditures and building programs.
•Work with administration to determine District standards and goals.
