Jemez Valley Public Schools Board of Education
The Jemez Valley Public Schools (JVPS) Board of Education is comprised of five members who devote their time to public service as elected officials of the 1100 square mile JVPS District.
The powers of the Board of Education lie in its action as a public body. Although a member of the Board of Education is a public officer, that person has no individual authority or power. By law, the JVPS Board of Education is charged with the employment of the superintendent, making policies and approving and oversight of the District’s budget. The Board does not address personnel issues. The Board works with the superintendent to shape the strategic direction of the District based on the Board approved strategic plan, District’s Mission and Vision Statements.
The Board holds twelve Board meetings to address District issues and to set policy.
Board Meetings are held on a regular basis, and all are welcome to attend.
Minutes are approved by the School Board monthly and are posted on this site once approved
Agendas, and Reports are available the Saturday prior to the third Tuesday of the month.
Public Comments - The JVPS School Board has a procedure for public comments. Those that wish to make a public comment, must sign up on the Public Participation Sign Up Sheet prior to the start of the meeting and are allocated three minutes to address the board.
The Board of Education sets Policies for the Jemez Valley Public Schools District.
