On behalf of the Governing Board and the administrators, the Peoria Unified School District wishes to thank all community members for their interest in the affairs of the district. Your support is invaluable.
The Peoria Unified School District Governing Board consists of five members, each of whom resides within the school district and is elected to a four-year term. They serve voluntarily. School board elections are held in conjunction with state and federal elections every two years.
By law, the Governing Board sets District policies and has final authority over all school district business. The district’s policy manual may be viewed at all Peoria Unified School District schools and the District Administration Center during regular hours, or click on the policy manual link above.
The district’s superintendent is appointed by the Governing Board and is charged with the execution of Board policy. The superintendent works closely with the administrative staff when developing recommendations for Board consideration.
Unless announced otherwise, Governing Board meetings are held at the District Administration Center located at 6330 W. Thunderbird Road, Glendale, AZ 85306.
Public Participation at Board Meetings
Members of the public are invited to attend meetings of the Board. The Board is subject to Arizona's Open Meeting Law, which limits discussion to those subjects included on the agenda for each meeting. Any individual may comment on any listed agenda item by completing a request form available at each meeting. A completed form must be submitted to the Board Secretary prior to the start of the meeting. The individual will be invited to speak when the agenda item indicated is considered by the Board. Each speaker will have 3 minutes to speak and public comment will be limited to 30 minutes.
Because the Peoria Unified School District respects the voices of its parents, staff and community members, the Board welcomes guests to its bi-monthly meetings where opinions and ideas can be expressed.
The public may request that items be included on the agenda. Topics for consideration should be submitted in writing to the superintendent at least seven days prior to the regularly scheduled meeting.
Study sessions are held as needed for the purpose of studying one or more specific issues in depth. No action is taken during a study session. The public is invited to attend. Notification of study sessions is posted at all sites and on the district’s website.
Executive sessions are occasionally scheduled to handle specific Board business matters, which include personnel, legal matters and property purchases. An executive session is closed to the public, but any official action on executive session items is taken during regular Board meetings.
The Peoria Unified School District does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, national origin, gender, age or disability.
