Oakdale School Board
The Oakdale School Board is comprised of three equal members who serve without pay for staggered three-year terms. Each member is elected at large and represents the entire District. The Board must balance the needs of multiple constituencies in making sound decisions for the good of the District. The Board is specifically responsible for setting District policy, approving the ongoing expenditures, budget and long range plan, as well as hiring and evaluating the Superintendent. The Board delegates executive functions to the Superintendent through written policies and a written contract. The Superintendent oversees all other employees, ensures the delivery of appropriate curriculum to the students and manages all building related functions. As specified in the Oakdale Policies Book, Board members have the authority to make decisions only as a body of the whole. The decsions of the Board are at times difficult but those decisions allow the Board to consistenly have the opportunity to achieve our vision.
"Our Vision of Success – To provide each student the opportunity to excel, to provide each educator the tools necessary to enable excellence, and to partner with our community to develop responsible citizens who have the ability to positively impact their world now and in the future."
