Board of Education

The Glen Lake Community Schools administration is governed by a publicly elected Board of Education. As citizen leaders, the Board of Education members face complex and demanding challenges. They have one of the most important volunteer jobs in the area – assuring a quality education to successive generations of children. Our board members are ordinary citizens with extraordinary dedication to our school whose role is to oversee and set school policy, hire and work in partnership with the superintendent, and oversee the District budget.
