The Everett Public Schools Board of Directors is a key part of the “public” in public education. The school board, district staff, and community are partners on behalf of the communities' children and their education. Schools and community nourish each other; active citizen interest guarantees public schools' excellence. To support this partnership, the school board encourages community members to attend each month’s board meetings. 
Voters elect five board members to represent the public’s views on how education should be governed locally. Each member serves a six-year term. Together, directors are responsible for establishing the district’s goals and policies. The board is the governing body that approves the district budget. The superintendent is the board’s chief executive officer. The superintendent and district staff carry out the board decisions.
