Board of Education

Representing the local Durant Community

 Function of the Board

The Durant Board of Education is a legislative body of five (5) members elected by a vote of the district. The board of education derives its authority from state law. The board's power is judicial and legislative, and the superintendent elected by the board serves as its executive officer. When not in legal session, a board member has no legal authority whatsoever.

The legislative function of the board is to make plans and policies, select the superintendent, and delegate to the superintendent the placing of plans and policies into operation, and provide the financial means for their achievement.

The judicial function of the board is to hear and resolve hearings, grievances, disciplinary appeals, public complaints and other actions of a judicial nature.
