School Board

Five members of the school board and two student representatives posed in the board room, smiling at the camera.

The Richfield Board of Education encourages open communication both during and outside of the board meetings.  Board members work to be available to meet and talk with individuals. 

Public Comments

If you wish to address the school board during a regular school board meeting, you may do so during the public comments portion of the agenda at the beginning of the meeting.  Public comment occurs at the second meeting of the month. To participate in the public comments, individuals must make a written request to the board secretary up until one minute before the start of a board meeting. The guidelines for public comment are distributed in person at each school board meeting and are outlined in board policy 216.
