Governing Board Members

Governing Board

The NSSEO Governing Board consists of eight board members. Each NSSEO member district appoints one of its elected Board members to represent their district on the NSSEO Governing Board. This Board establishes policy, oversees financial plans and supports program development to ensure that NSSEO programs and services are meeting the needs of the member districts. Board representatives serve on the following NSSEO committees: Finance Committee, Safety Committee, Insurance Committee, Policy Committee, and Negotiations. They also participate in a variety of NSSEO related activities.

NSSEO Board of Education documents and policies will be available on-line by accessing BoardDocs, an electronic document system. BoardDocs provides the District an electronic means for posting policies and supporting documents, and will enable quick and easy searches of online materials within its system.

Access the Board of Education Policy Manual and Documents in BoardDocs.


As regulations and recommendations from the CDC and Governor’s Office continue to change, we will continue to adapt how all Board meetings will function. For example, that might include changes to the location, changes to the allowed attendance number, a change of how the meeting is held (live/in-person or via Zoom), etc. Please note that as dates and details change we will do our best to inform the public on social media, via email, and post changes on our website.


The Board will receive Public Comment for up to three minutes and follow the guidelines listed below. Such comments should not include discussion of personnel matters, which instead should be brought to the attention of the administration.
