The Work of Your Board of Education

Toledo voters elect five people to serve on the Board for four-year terms. Board members are dedicated to the education of all children in the TPS District and are accountable to the community. They research issues; lobby for the district's fair share of money from local, state and federal legislators; attend school events; represent TPS on multiple task forces; discuss and vote on policy issues and approve recommendations from the superintendent of schools and the TPS treasurer on curriculum, personnel and finances.
