The Sauk Rapids-Rice School Board consists of seven members, elected by the public, who serve four-year terms. Elections are held in conjunction with the general election in November of even-numbered years. The high school student council appoints a non-voting student representative to the board and the superintendent is an ex-officio member as well. School board members are responsible for establishing the district budget and for generating district policies. The board officially enters into contract agreements on behalf of the organization, though the delegation of responsibilities for the operation of the district flows through the district office and the superintendent’s administrative team.
