Willmar School Board

  • The seven-member Willmar School Board makes policy and oversees the district’s budget, curriculum, personnel and facilities. The group looks out for the best interests of Willmar Public Schools as a whole to ensure the district can effectively serve each and every student.

    Citizen-members are elected to at large, four-year terms, which means members don’t represent specific neighborhoods or wards, but the district as a whole. The terms overlap, which means elections are held every two years.

    All School Board meetings are open to the public, except for those specifically permitted by law to be closed for discussion of identified issues such as negotiation strategy, litigation or private student or personnel data.

    The School Board consists of a chairperson, vice-chair, clerk, treasurer, and three directors.
