School Board

Index School Board

Index School District is governed by a board of directors consisting of five community members who are accountable to and elected by the Index community. The School Board provides direction to their superintendent and generally advises on budgetary, program policy, and staff members. The Board invites you to attend meetings on the third Tuesday of each month. All members of our school board are committed to seeing the best education for your children. Notices of school board meetings are posted on the reader board at the local store and the front door of the school.
