Who We Are

The Board of Education consists of seven members elected annually at the spring election on the first Tuesday in April for a term of three years. Two student representatives, non-voting members, are appointed to the Board in May of each year to fulfill a one-year term from June 1 to May 31.   

The Board of Education operates under a policy governance model. This approach emphasizes a commitment to stakeholder input and maintaining focus on the ultimate purpose of schooling-student achievement.

Board of Education Meetings are typically held in the District Office Community Training Center, 2706 Lineville Road, Green Bay, WI  54313 at 6 p.m.


Mission

The mission of the Howard-Suamico School District Board of Education is to enact policies and allocate resources to develop all students' full academic potential and to promote their social and emotional growth.
