Robbinsdale Area Schools, Independent School District 281, is governed by a seven member School Board. Each member is elected at large to four-year terms. Board members are elected in even-numbered years, taking their seats in January.

The Board is responsible for developing policy to ensure proper care, management and control of district affairs, supporting the Unified District Vision and Equity Policy. The Board’s job is to represent, lead and serve the school district community and to govern the organization by establishing expectations for student achievement and quality operational performance, and by monitoring actual performance against those expectations. Board members also serve appointments on numerous district-wide councils and committees, and state organizations. Click here to view the 2020 School Board committee assignments.
