Andover Board of Education
The Andover Board of Education meets monthly on the second Monday of each month at 6:30 p.m. at the Andover Center for Advanced Professional Studies, 1401 W. 13th St., Andover. Meetings are open to the public. You can find all meeting agendas, meeting documents, board policies and much more at our BoardDocs website.
The Andover Board of Education is composed of seven members elected from three districts and one member at large. The board has several functions, including establishing the vision for the district, setting goals, and establishing policies for our school system. They hire and evaluate the superintendent, help to establish and monitor district goals, and build support for public education. The school board is legislative and judicial rather than executive. The superintendent is responsible for the efficient administration and supervision of the schools.
