Who Represents You On The Board of Education?

Who Represents You On The Board of Education?

Who represents you on the Union Public Schools Board of Education?

Board member Heather McAdams received this question from a parent of a child at the Union 6th/7th Grade Center recently.

“Union’s Board of Education members are elected to represent a specific population area of the district based on a census that divides residents as equally as possible,” McAdams said. “So how do you know who ‘your’ board member is? The answer, strictly speaking, is look for the board member who holds the seat corresponding to the board zone with your address.”

McAdams said, “Here’s the reality, however. The board is here to serve the district. We want what is best for every student, family, teacher, and employee of the district. While we do represent a specific part of the district population, any one of us is happy to help you regardless of your board zone. At Union, we work hard to be a united board, keeping our goals district centered. So a board member does not have to be ‘your’ board member in order to help you, just like we don’t only help ‘our zone’ students or schools.”

So what does the board do?

The school board functions as an overarching governing body.

“This means we don’t make the more everyday decisions like which teacher your student has, or if they get to play on a specific team,” McAdams said. “We have the job of providing the framework and rules for the district, overseeing how the district money is spent, and approving contracts to keep the district functioning. However, we are all willing and happy to hear your concerns, we are your representatives after all! It’s true that we can’t fix problems we don’t know we have. So please feel free to reach out to ‘your’ or any board member with your concerns, and we can get you directed to the correct people to help fix the issue.”
