About The Board


Board of Education
The Leavenworth School District, as all districts in Kansas, is governed by a seven member Board of Education. In Leavenworth, school board members are elected at large by the entire community. The only legal qualification for a citizen to be eligible for the board of education is that they be a registered voter in the school district. School board members serve four-year staggered terms, so that there is a stream of consistency and history and not all board members are new at the same time. School board elections are held the first Tuesday in April of each odd year. 
 

Our Goals
There are four main goals of a Board of Education:
  • Maximize the academic performance of each student.
  • Attract and retain quality teachers and administrators.
  • Improve collaboration and engagement with our parents and community.
  • Ensure adequate facilities and safe schools.
  • Maximize funding and prioritize spending based upon the educational needs of students. 

Issues of Concern
You may contact members of the Board of Education regarding issues of concern, but it is important to know that decisions are made with a quorum of the Board when it is in session. Board members commit time, energy, and vision in making Leavenworth the best school district in the state of Kansas. The Board of Education changes every two years, and we have been fortunate to have determined and committed members to provide advocacy and support for students, parents, community, and teachers/staff.
