The Board of Directors for the Sweet Home School District is composed of nine publicly elected community members. The School Board sets District policy to help the District achieve the goal of success for all students; remain compliant with federal, state and local laws; and to maintain fiscal responsibility. The School Board also hires and supervises the Superintendent, whose job is to run the day-to-day operations on the District and provide educational leadership and vision for teachers and administrators.

Regular Board Meetings are usually held on the second Monday of each month in the Board Room of the Administrative Offices located at 1920 Long Street, Sweet Home, OR 97386. Board Meetings routinely start at 6:30 p.m. and are open to the public unless otherwise provided by law. Time for public comment will take place at a regular business meeting. Special meetings, also open to the public, are scheduled when needed. These sessions provide an opportunity for Board members to examine specific issues more thoroughly. Should a special meeting be scheduled, public notice will be provided.
