The overwhelming majority of families send their students to a school that is governed and managed by a local school board. In Wisconsin, school boards have elected members that serve their communities and make important decisions about their schools. This localized system of control gives Wisconsinites a strong voice in the decision-making process.
One of the main duties of a school board is to set the spending levels for their communities. In Wisconsin, schools are paid for through a combination of federal, state, and local funds. School boards also handle the care, control, and management of property and the suspension and expulsion of pupils.
