WFPS School Board

The School Board is comprised of seven residents of the West Fargo School District elected at large to four-year terms. They receive an $9,380 annual compensation and the president receives an additional $670.  Board members attend regularly scheduled meetings each month, participate on committees specified in their governing policies, and serve as liaisons to schools. 

School Board elections for three or four positions on the Board are held in conjunction with the county elections. New directors take their seats in July and the Board elects new officers at that time.

The Board’s job is to represent, lead, and serve the citizens and to govern the district by establishing expectations for district results, expectations for quality operational performance, and monitoring actual performance against those expectations. 

The Board will govern lawfully with primary emphasis on results for students; encourage full exploration of diverse viewpoints; focus on governance matters rather than administrative issues; observe clear separation of Board and Superintendent roles; make all official decisions by formal vote of the Board; and govern with long-term vision.
