Who We Are

Board of Trustees

As the community served by the SDOC has grown, so has the group of volunteers who sit on the Board of Trustees.  The Board of Trustees is comprised of a group of volunteers who hail from diverse industries and experiences with the collective goal of enhancing the educational opportunities afforded to all students in grades K-12.  We support innovative and creative educational programs and special projects that are designed to enrich the mind and body of the 4,200 K-12 students enrolled in the District’s six public schools.    We operate independently of the Board of Education and Parent Teacher Organizations.
