Board of Trustees

The Kuna School Board is the school district's policy-making body, establishing the principles that govern the daily operation of the school system. Each of the five trustees represents specific geographic zones in the district, called zones. Individual members have no authority to act on their own but meet as a board in a formal session. They receive no salaries or benefits and are elected to a four-year term.

Our Board of Trustees includes:
