School Board

The School Board is made up of a five member board representing five districts in Highlands County. Each board member serves a four year term representing their districts. The board is responsible for setting policy and meeting requirements set by the Florida Legislature and State Board of Education Rules.

Welcome to the School Board of Highlands County’s website. We hope you will take an opportunity to attend our meetings, for we welcome your input. Citizen involvement is very crucial to the success of our public school system as we work together for the benefit of all students.

All meetings are held in the Garland Boggus Board Room at the School Board's Administration Building located at 426 School Street, Sebring, Florida at 5:30 p.m. unless otherwise advertised. In addition to the regular meetings, the Board holds workshops (work sessions) as needed to study, review and discuss specific issues. No formal action is taken at the workshops. The Board may also schedule public hearings or special meetings as needed to discuss specific issues and may take action when necessary.

The agendas for the regular meetings are established at least one week in advance and are posted on the website and in the lobby of the School Board’s Administration Building. The complete agenda packet for each meeting is available on the board meetings page and a hard copy will be available for public review.

The School Board of Highlands County does not discriminate upon the basis of any individual’s disability status.
