The Chisago Lakes School Board is made up of six citizens elected at large by voters in the District. The Superintendent is an ex-officio member of the Board, who facilitates the work of the Board and is responsible to the Board for providing leadership to the District and carrying out Board directives.
Members are elected to four-year overlapping terms, with elections held every two years. At the end of a four-year term, members may run for re-election to successive terms. Voting takes place at general elections in November, and terms begin the first Monday in January thereafter. If a vacancy occurs in the middle of a term, the School Board names an appointee to serve until the next district election.
