What Does the Andover Board of Education do?

  • The most important thing a school board does is to establish a vision for the community’s schools that reflects a consensus of the board, community and district staff. Your school board is your community’s education watchdog, ensuring that taxpayers get the most for their tax dollars. The school board sets the policies, goals, and objectives for the district – and it holds the superintendent responsible for implementing the policies and achieving the goals. The school board responsibilities include, but are not limited to, negotiating contracts, adopting a balanced annual budget, issuing interim financial reports, adopting the school calendar, approving curriculum materials and closing or constructing schools.
