Sacramento County Board of Education

The Sacramento County Board of Education consists of seven elected members, each serving four-year terms. The Board derives its power and authority from the State Constitution (Article IX) and the laws of the State of California. The Board appoints the County Superintendent of Schools, who also acts as secretary to the Board.

In addition to conducting its regular business, other Board responsibilities include hearing student expulsion appeals and interdistrict transfer appeals. Various Board sub-committees—including the Executive Committee, Policy Committee, and Budget Committee—strategize and discuss topics in-depth, developing recommendations that can be reported back to the Board.
