The School Board is made up of seven citizens elected at large by voters in the District. Members are elected to four-year overlapping terms, with elections are held every two years. At the end of a four-year term, members may run for re-election to successive terms. Voting takes place at general elections in November, and terms begin the first Monday in January thereafter. If a vacancy occurs in the middle of a term, the School Board names an appointee to serve until the next district election.
Feb. 1, 2018 Statement from the School Board
With a new year underway, the Edina School Board and Administration would like to pause and acknowledge the hard work being done in our school district. We have asked a lot of our teachers, staff, students and community-at-large - from moving 9th grade to the high school and major construction projects, to new programs and technologies. We could never attempt to accomplish any of this or the high level of excellence that defines Edina without the guidance and support of our educators and staff. Edina teachers are educators, scholars, role models, innovators, and compassionate advocates, and today we want to take time to recognize you. Our staff is second to none, and the glue that keeps our district together. On behalf of the board and the district, I would like to thank our Edina Public School teachers and our staff for their work, and its positive impact on our students and the greater school community.

School Board Officers
Every year at its first meeting in January, the School Board holds an organizational meeting to elect officers and settle other routine business. The Superintendent is an ex-officio member of the Board who facilitates the work of the Board and is responsible to the Board for providing leadership to the District and carrying out Board directives.
Like most Minnesota school boards, Edina Public Schools offers a stipend for School Board service. Members of the Edina School Board receive a stipend of $4,500 per year.
