What is a School Board?
A school board is an elected body which has the direct and immediate responsibility under state low for providing a state-sponsored public education to the students of a given local school district. Amendment X of the U.S. Constitution reserves the power to establish a public education system to the states.
School boards are governed by Title 70 of the Oklahoma Statutes. These laws are the frame of reference within which every school board must operate.
