The Union County Board of Education is made up of nine members
. Six board members are elected from districts. There are three at-large members. All board members serve staggered four-year terms.
The primary functions of the board are to establish policies
for the operation of the schools and to generally oversee that the superintendent
and administrative staff
who manage the system's day-to-day operations carry out these policies.
The board recognizes and welcomes its responsibility to hear requests and suggestions from delegations and individuals in the community. Public comments
can be made to the Board at regular monthly open meetings
. Persons wishing to address the school board may sign up to speak at the meeting site prior to the beginning of each meeting.
