Citizens often run for school board and find when elected, they know little regarding the actual role of school board member. They may possess a strong knowledge about the district, but have a limited background in working with a governing board and conducting business in a public setting.
Or, they may have some experience in working with other boards, but have very little knowledge of education and many functions of a district. Each board member brings different experiences and knowledge to the position.
