The Manhattan-Ogden USD 383 Board of Education is a policy making committee of elected officials who serve the district and community. There are seven members who are elected at-large for four-year staggered terms. All registered voters within the boundary of the USD 383 school district are eligible to vote for the board of education candidates.

Board members guide and approve policies, decide how to allocate the budget, make employment decisions regarding the superintendent and all other employees, and approve the curriculum and programs of the district.

Board meetings are generally held at 6:30 p.m. on the first and third Wednesday of each month at the Robinson Education Center, located at 2031 Poyntz Avenue. All regular meetings are open to the public and can be viewed live from the district’s YouTube channel. Recordings of past meetings (for the past 3 months) are also available through the Agenda and Minutes link. Recorded meetings are not the official minutes of Board of Education meetings.

Our board and every member of our district team is guided by the Strategic Plan, which was adopted in August of 2019. Our board members value community input and welcome communication.



Recognition of Citizens Comments at Board of Education Meetings

Persons may present ideas or concerns not addressed on the agenda regarding USD 383 schools during the time allowed at the beginning of each regular Board meeting.  No action will be taken by the Board at the meeting.  Such items will be referred to the appropriate administrators for future information and research and reported back to the Board at a later meeting.  Personalities and behavior of employees are not to be presented during this time but are to be reported to the employee's immediate supervisor.  Citizen participation is limited to three minutes.  The Citizen Comment form, which is to be turned in to the Board Clerk, is available at the meeting or can be found below.  Communications received by mail or email will be distributed directly to the Board of Education.
