The Board of Education is composed of five citizens elected to serve overlapping terms of four years each. At the end of his/her term, a board member wishing to continue service to the community must be re-elected to an additional four-year term. State law does not limit the number of terms a member may serve.

Primarily, the Board has the responsibility of establishing policies by which the McCracken County Schools are operated. Administrators, teachers, and support personnel are employed to carry out these policies.

The Board of Education has regular monthly meetings on the third Thursday of each month. A notice of the date and location of each meeting is published in the Paducah Sun. If a special meeting is called, a public notice is made well in advance. All official business of the Board is transacted in open session and minutes are recorded.
