The Board of Education is the governing body of the Mona Shores Public School District with responsibility for developing policy to ensure the proper care, management and control of District affairs.

The Board consists of seven citizens elected at large by the voters of the district. Board members must be U.S. citizens and registered to vote in the District. Members serve six-year terms, with either two or three seats up for election in November of even-numbered years. 

In addition to setting policy, the Board hires and evaluates the superintendent; approves the budget for the district; places millage requests on the ballot for voter approval to support the operation of the district; approves staff hiring, transfers, resignations, terminations, and leaves of absence; approves expenditures; approves educational programs and curricula; and otherwise ensures that facilities and equipment are available to support learning and teaching in the District.

Organizational Meetings

The Board holds an organizational meeting in early July to set the meeting schedule for the coming fiscal year, and settle other routine business.  Officers (president, vice president, secretary, and treasurer) are elected each year in January.

Work Session & Regular Session Meetings

Work Session/Regular Session meetings are held at 7 p.m. on the first and second Mondays of most months in the Judith L. Wilcox Professional Learning Center at the Ross Park Elementary campus at 121 Randall Road in Norton Shores. Click here for the current meeting schedule. Special meetings may be added at any time and are posted on the District’s home page.

Public Welcome

The Board welcomes public input on any issues relevant to the district. Members of the public are encouraged to attend all School Board meetings, and anyone may address the Board during a public comment period at each Board meeting.
