The Finance Committee discussed its priorities for the impending budget cuts while staff mainly listened. The big three priorities for the board seemed to be retaining assistant principals, at least at some schools, keeping magnet school supervisors at the school level rather than have them operate out of a central location, and maintaining the fifth grade music program.

The Minneapolis Board of Education, or School Board, is the elected body responsible for governing finances and policies, establishing and monitoring the strategic direction and goals, and hiring and evaluating the district’s superintendent, who serves as the district’s chief executive.

The School Board is comprised of nine directors, elected by Minneapolis voters, and two student representatives who are appointed. The superintendent also serves as an ex-officio member of the board. Board members serve four-year terms, beginning in January after being elected in November. Each year in January, the school board selects its leadership, which includes a chair, vice-chair, clerk, and treasurer.
