Board of Education


The Board of Education

The Manitou Springs Board of Education (BOE) consists of 5 members elected to four-year terms. The BOE meets once a month.  This date is usually the fourth Monday of the month; however, there are months that require earlier meetings.  Please check with the district administration at 685-2024 for specific dates and times of yearly BOE meetings.   The fundamental work of the BOE is to establish the direction of the district, set organizational goals, and monitor the progress of the district towards those goals. The BOE Directors have developed a series of ends statements and executive limitations to direct their work based on multiple community meetings and outreach.  The ends statements are embedded in the district’s mission of establishing deep, meaningful relationships; creating academically rigorous courses; and providing multiple opportunities for students to engage in a wide range of activities.
