Board of Education

The Akron Public Schools Board of Education is the official body representing the citizens of Akron on all matters of public education. The board is non-partisan and non-sectarian. Its members are elected at-large for four-year terms.

The Board of Education:

  • determines needs and priorities of the school system.
  • allocates resources within the school system.
  • evaluates the overall performance of the school system.

All policy issues are voted upon by board members at their regularly scheduled meetings. A simple majority of votes carries an issue. Committee chairs report at each board meeting. Their reports provide information and may include recommendation for board action.

Board Organization

The board of education comprises seven members assisted by an appointed officer – the treasurer. The board president and vice president are elected from the membership at the first meeting of each calendar year. The board meets the second and fourth Monday of every month.
