    Board Governance Information

    School district governance is the act of transforming the needs, wishes, and desires of the community into policies that direct the community's schools.

    The Larkspur-Corte Madera School District Governance Team is made up of the five Trustees and the Superintendent. Trustees are elected volunteers who serve four-year terms.
