The Board of Education is District Twenty's policy-making body, governing the educational and financial affairs of D20. The Board is composed of five citizens elected to serve overlapping terms of four years each.  At the end of his/her term, a board director wishing to continue this unsalaried community service must be reelected to an additional four-year term. Voting for school board positions takes place on the November General Election ballot.  This is a term limited situation that is defined by state law to 2 contiguous, 4 year terms.  The District Twenty Board of Education also includes a nonvoting member acting as a liaison with the United States Air Force Academy. This member is assigned through mutual agreement between the Air Force Academy and District Twenty.  The Board of Education meetings are usually held the first and third Thursday of each month in the Education and Administration Center, and are always open to the public.
