CAMBRIAN SCHOOL DISTRICT BOARD OF TRUSTEES FACT SHEET
Cambrian School District's Governing Board is composed of five elected members and serve a four-year term. Elections are held in even-numbered years and terms are staggered to ensure that only 2 or 3 seats are open each election.
The Cambrian Board of Trustees works with the Superintendent to:
- Provide direction for the District
- Establish District policies and procedures
- Ensures accountability
- Provide community leadership on behalf of the district and public education.
The Governing Board makes learning a priority for all students, prioritizing goals and clarifying expectations for positive outcomes. The Board will establish structure, provide citizen oversight and protect the public’s interest in preserving a free and equitable public education system. These responsibilities represent core functions that are so fundamental to a school system’s accountability to the public that they can only be performed by an elected governing body. Authority is granted to the Board as a whole, not each member individually. Therefore, Board Members fulfill these responsibilities by working together as a governance team with the Superintendent to make decisions that will best serve all the students in the community. In California, there are approximately 1,000 school districts and county offices of education that are governed by more than 5,000 school board members. California’s is the largest public school system in the nation, serving more than 6 million students--a collective student body larger than the total population of many other states.
All Board meetings are held at the Cambrian School District Professional Development Center, 4115 Jacksol Drive Building 7, San Jose, CA 95124. This building is located behind the main office and can be reached by entering the gate to the right of the main building. Regularly scheduled meetings begin at 7:30 p.m. and are held the first and third Thursday of every month, August-June. Special Board meetings dates and start times vary and are scheduled when needed.
For more information regarding the responsibilities of Board of Trustees members, please direct inquiries to Carlena Grandey, assistant to Superintendent Dr. Carrie Andrews, at email@example.com or (408) 377-2103.
