Board of education

The Royal Oak School Board represents the people of the district as the legal body that sets general school policy and establishes guidelines that will ensure the proper administration of the Royal Oak Schools programs.  


School Board

The Royal Oak School Board has a seven-member board of directors. Terms are for four years and overlap to ensure continuity of board leadership.  School board members receive no pay for their public service. The school board is accountable to you, the Royal Oak community, and to the state and federal government.

School Board Members

Board Business (agendas, minutes & calendar)

Regular meetings are held on the second Thursday of each month in the boardroom. Board meetings regularly begin at 7:00 p.m. Regular meetings are open to the public. Copies of the agenda are available at the door and on line.  All board meetings must comply with the Open Meetings Act.

Citizens Advisory Committees

The School Board actively seeks the advice of community members through a wide range of advisory committees and councils. These advisory committees and councils are appointed by the School Board, advise the School Board and, when appropriate, make recommendations on issues or policies related to the successful operation of the school district.

Learn more about the various committees or to apply for a committee position.

Questions, Comments or Concerns

Citizens are encouraged to communicate with Royal Oak School educators and school board members. If you have a concern, the best place to begin is with those directly involved and responsible, usually at the specific school: the particular teacher and/or principal. It is there that most problems can be quickly and productively resolved.

We welcome your ideas, questions or suggestions. With your help, we can achieve our goal of continued excellence in education.
