Your Lawrence Board of Education
Board of EducationThe community elects seven citizens from the Lawrence school district to serve as at-large members of the board of education. Each board member serves a four-year term without salary. The board's duties include setting educational policy, approving the district's budget and hiring and evaluating the superintendent.

The board meets twice monthly, generally on the second and fourth Mondays of the month. These public meetings begin at 7 p.m. at the district's Educational Support and Distribution Center, 110 McDonald Drive. Board meetings are televised LIVE on LPS TV 26 (available on WOW! with a cable box), with replays at 6 p.m. on Wednesday nights. Meetings also are available via live webstream and online archives.

School board meeting agendas, available online, include a time for Audience Participation. The district makes forms available at each board meeting to patrons who wish to comment. The board invites comments on items not included on its agenda at the beginning of each meeting and provides opportunities for public comment on agenda items after board members have discussed the items. The board asks that patrons limit their comments to three minutes. Audience Participation is a time for public comment, rather than a question-and-answer period. The Lawrence Board of Education welcomes public comment and participation.
