Role of the School Board

The Mayfield Board of Education is made up of five non-paid citizens who are each elected to serve five-year terms. The board’s main responsibilities and duties are to:

  • Establish district policies;
  • Develop an annual budget for public approval;
  • Approve or disapprove the Superintendent’s recommendations on personnel matters and contracts;
  • Review courses of study and textbooks; and
  • Act as a communication link between residents and the Superintendent.

Other duties include defining the district’s philosophy, setting goals to achieve academic objectives, planning for future needs, and authorizing certain contracts.
