A school board serves as a link between the school system and the public and sets the policy for the school district.

School boards differ from city councils and other boards in a variety of ways.

In preview of the upcoming special school board election, Rick Sansted, superintendent of Alexandria Public Schools, will discuss the roles and responsibilities of school board members at the Alexandria Lakes Area Chamber of Commerce’s virtual Listen and Learn event on Tuesday, Oct. 26 at 11:30 am.
