As provided in state statutes, compensation is not provided for members of the Board of Education.
However, the Board recognizes the benefits derived by the school district through Board member
attendance at regional, state and national conferences and conventions and similar efforts on behalf
of the school district.
Board members may attend local inter-district, county, city, and state meetings and conferences at
district expense where representation is warranted. Board members may attend and travel to out-of-state meetings and conferences at district expense when:
► The district is making a presentation at the meeting or conference.
► Information presented at the meeting or conference can significantly contribute to an issue
facing the district.
► District representation by a Board member is warranted.
Board member attendance at an out-of-state meeting or conference must be approved by a majority
of the Board.
As the school district as a whole is benefitted, the Board will reimburse Board members for normal
expenses for motel, food, registration, and transportation costs incurred while attending authorized
conferences and meetings. It shall be the duty of those attending such meetings at school district
expense to furnish to the Board a summary or report for the benefit of members not in attendance.
