School Board

2018 School Board
Owatonna Public Schools is governed by a seven-member School Board elected at-large by district residents.  Board members serve four-year terms.  The superintendent is appointed by the Board and serves as the Board's agent.  Board meetings are held regularly with the dates published in the local newspaper, district calendar, and on the website.  You are welcome to attend the School Board meetings.  You may also watch the Board meetings on the school district website.  Official meeting information and notes are available in BoardBook, also accessible through our website.
