Governing Board Members:

The Board

Board members must reside in the Sacaton Elementary School District. Operating within the laws of the state legislature, and the rules and regulations of the Arizona State Board of Education, the board sets policy for the management of the district. The superintendent and district staff are responsible for the execution of these policies.

Board meetings are open to the public except during executive session. Speakers may offer comments on school operations and programs. According to state law, the governing board cannot discuss issues or answer questions at the meeting on items which do not appear on the agenda. Patrons wishing to address the board may do so by completing a request form, located at the back of the board room at each meeting, and presenting it to the Superintendent prior to the start of the meeting.


Agenda postings are not less than 24 hours prior to each board meeting. Board meeting agendas are available on the Sacaton Elementary School District website and hard copies are posted in the official posting location at the district office located at 92 S. Skill Center Road.
