Board of Education

Jordan School District is led by the Board of Education, which consists of seven elected officials that represent their communities. The Board works with students, parents and District employees to provide students with educational opportunities, prepare for the world of work, and develop attributes of citizenship necessary in a democratic society. The Board is dedicated to maintaining a safe environment that promotes individual responsibility, personal achievement, and respect for all individuals.
