Mariemont City Schools Board of Education
A Board of Education is the creation of the state legislature and derives its authority to manage and operate the public schools of the district from the Ohio General Assembly. A board of education not only has the authority, but also the legal responsibility for the management and control of the schools’ employees and students of the district. The members comprising the board of education have no authority to act except as a board, when together in a session, and then as a body or unit by resolution or motion.
Members of the board of education must be qualified electors and residents of the state for one year and of the school district for at least 40 days. Five board of education members are selected on a nonpartisan ballot for a four year term. The board elects a president and vice president at its organizational meeting in January.
