BOE

Board of Education

Elected from the community by the community, the Board of Education is charged with charting a course for student achievement. Board members approve the policies and programs that bolster classroom learning and support the district’s athletics and arts programs. Their decisions ultimately affect the district’s long-term success and, by extension, the entire community.

To make the best, most educated decisions, the district’s board members spend countless hours of personal time on research, training, and seminars. They work with parents, educators, and other community members to ensure the district’s vision and direction meet stakeholders’ expectations. They ask informed questions about student programming and district finances. And they check that the district’s initiatives are in sync with the five-year strategic plan, VBCS 2016: Innovation Destination.

Board of Education Meeting

The Board of Education generally meets at 6 p.m. on the fourth Tuesday of the month for regular business meetings and on varying dates for work session meetings. Regular business meetings are typically held in the lecture room at Butler High School (600 S. Dixie), and workshop sessions are typically held at the Board of Education office (306 South Dixie Drive).

Meeting times, dates, and locations are subject to change; call (937) 415-6400 to verify dates and times.
