How the Board is Elected and Serves

Our seven board members are elected by the Shawnee Mission voters.  The board of education serves as the district's governing body in accordance with state and federal law.  One member is elected from each of the district's five areas:  East, North, Northwest, South, and West (Board Member Areas and Voting Precincts).  Two members are elected as At-Large representatives for the district.  All members serve the entire district and serve without pay.
