School Board

The School Board is the policy-making body for Bloomington Public Schools. While the Board is responsible for school programs and operations by law, it delegates some portion of that authority to the Superintendent. The School Board is governed by a Chair and a Vice Chair who are elected by the School Board membership.

The School Board includes student representatives, one from each high school.
