About the Board

San Rafael City Schools Board of Education consists of five members who are elected at-large by the entire San Rafael community to serve four-year terms. 

This five-member Board is the policy-making body that governs both the San Rafael Elementary School District and the San Rafael High School District. The Board is charged with providing a quality educational program for students in grades kindergarten through 12 in accordance with the California Constitution, the laws of the State, and adopted Board policies. 

Three student board members representing each of the three high schools (Madrone High School, San Rafael High School and Terra Linda High School) serve one-year terms as student representatives.


Compensation
Board members in San Rafael City Schools are not compensated for their public service.  Unlike other school district jurisdictions, elected trustees do not receive a monthly stipend or compensation for their term in office. The Board of Education views Board service as a voluntary contribution to the community and per city charter receives no compensation. Click here for the SRCS Board Policy on remuneration, reimbursement and other benefits. 


Election Procedures
Per Education Code, any person is eligible to be a member of the Board of Education, without further qualifications, if he/she is 18 years of age or older, a citizen of the state, a resident of the school district, a registered voter, and not legally disqualified from holding civil office. Click here for the SRCS Board Policy on Board of Education elections. 

Please note that specific election deadlines and other election-related procedures are set by the County of Marin's Elections Department. SRCS will share the information related to Board of Education elections from the County's Elections Department on the SRCS website as it becomes available.
