Board of Education

BofED Dec 2019

The MPSD School Board consists of seven members who are responsible for establishing policies in accordance with state law regarding students, personnel, educational programs, facilities, equipment, and relations with the community. The Board establishes the budget and has fiscal control. The superintendent serves as the Chief Executive Officer and offers recommendations to the Board when developing and administering District philosophy, goals, and revisions to Board policies.

Unlike the City Council and County Board, members are elected “at large,”  meaning they represent the entire school district and not any designated portion. Citizens may contact any or all Board members but should be aware that members have no authority as individuals, only as they meet together as a Board. 

Correspondance can be sent to Board Secretary Laurie Braun, MPSD Administration Office 2902 Lindbergh Drive Manitowoc, WI 54220.  Please contact her with questions at 920-686-4783 or braunla@mpsd.k12.wi.us
