About SRVUSD Area 3
About the SRVUSD Board of Education
The Board of Education is a five person policy-making body which operates within the laws of the State of California and Contra Costa County. Each board member is elected for a four-year term. Terms of office are staggered, with elections held every two years. The Board is responsible for approving the District’s budget and adopting all policies and curriculum. The authority of the Board is as a whole and no Board member may act as an official of the District except when the board meets in a regular or a special session. The Board of Trustees is elected to represent all of the people of the school district. In making its decisions, the Board is guided by what is in the best interest of the entire district. The 2020 election is the first to require the candidate to live in the area they are representing and citizens specifically voting for the trustee representing their area. The 2020 election will see Areas 2 and 3 on the ballot.
The Board President, Vice President, and Clerk are selected on a rotating basis during the organizational meeting held in December.
Each member of the Board of Education may receive a monthly compensation as provided for in law (Education Code 35120). Currently, Board members can receive a monthly compensation of $400 per month.
