School Board
  The ISD 2397 School Board is the governing body of the district, responsible for developing policy to ensure proper care, management and control of district affairs. The board also hires the superintendent; approves staff hiring, resignations, terminations and leaves of absences; sets the annual local school levy; approves expenditures; approves educational programs, and otherwise ensures that proper facilities and equipment  are available to support teaching and learning within the district.
