Flagstaff Unified School District Governing Board
Members of the Flagstaff Unified School District Governing Board are elected public officials who serve as the decision-making body for the District. They set policies and decide appeals of administrative decisions. They hire the Superintendent of Schools to run the District on their behalf.The Governing Board members represent the community. Constituents are encouraged to contact Board members with concerns and comments about schools at either the building or the District level. When presenting a concern, citizens should be aware that Governing Board members exercise authority only as a body, not as individuals.Any registered voter who has lived in the Flagstaff Unified School District for a year or more may run for election to the Governing Board. A Board member may not be a District employee or be married to a District employee.Members serve four-year terms beginning January 1 of the year following their election. Terms are staggered so that two members stand for election in one election year and three members the next, making it unlikely that an entire new Board will be elected at one time.Members may serve an unlimited number of terms. In the event a member cannot serve a full term, the Coconino County Superintendent of Schools may call an election or appoint a new member to serve until the next regularly scheduled election.
