Governing Board

Our governing board consists of five community members who are elected to four-year terms. Working on a volunteer basis, the board members dedicate their time and considerable talents to making policies, establishing a budget, providing guidance, and ensuring the effective management and financial soundness of our schools.

We hold governing board meetings on the second and fourth Tuesday of every month at 5:00 p.m. These meetings, which are open to the public, take place in the Santa Cruz Valley Unified School District No.35 Governing Board Room in the district office, located at 570 Camino Lito Galindo in Rio Rico. We encourage you to take a look at our current agenda and past board meeting minutes, which you can find at the side of this page.
