Board meeting dates, agendas and minutes


San Rafael City Schools Board of Education consists of five members who are elected by trustee-area by the San Rafael community to serve four-year terms. 

This five-member Board is the policy-making body that governs both the San Rafael Elementary School District and the San Rafael High School District. The Board is charged with providing a quality educational program for students in grades TK-12 in accordance with the California Constitution, the laws of the State, and adopted Board policies. 

Three student board members representing each of the three high schools (Madrone High School, San Rafael High School and Terra Linda High School) and two student board members representing each middle school ( Davidson Middle School and Venetia Valley Middle School) serve one-year terms as student representatives.

Board members in San Rafael City Schools are not compensated for their public service. Unlike other school district jurisdictions, elected trustees do not receive a monthly stipend or compensation for their term in office. The Board of Education views Board service as a voluntary contribution to the community and per city charter receives no compensation. Click here for the SRCS Board Policy on remuneration, reimbursement and other benefits.
