Serving our Students and Community

What do school board members do? And why would community members want to serve as a school board member?

This is a timely question because the filing period for candidates for this fall's school board election begins on May 16 and runs for about two weeks. For important information about filing for election, please see this link to our district web page.

As I reflect on more than four decades working with school board members, their responses to this "why" question follow common themes:

First, candidates have a sense of responsibility to our schools and community, a recognition that each of us and our own children have benefited from the service of others, and candidates are willing to step forward to take their turn.

Second, candidates believe they have professional skills and personal life experiences which might benefit a school board, administration and staff, and ultimately all students.

Third, candidates are drawn by the opportunity to work closely with other board members and the school community to deliver on our commitment to serve all students well, deepen trust with employees, families, and the community, and prepare for the future.

If you are interested in becoming a candidate, consider these steps:

1. Read information about the role of a school board member, available on the web page of the Minnesota School Boards Association at mnmsba.org. We have linked a document from the section "Becoming a School Board Member" for Prospective Board Candidates.
2. Learn about the issues before our school board on the district's web page where you can find meeting schedules and past agendas, meeting minutes and highlights, and video or audio coverage of past meetings.

3. Talk to current or past school board members about the role to learn more about the experience of serving as a board member in the White Bear Lake Area Schools.

Finally, on behalf of our students, staff, and community, we express our appreciation for those board members who are currently serving or have served in the past!
