    The School Board of the Almond-Bancroft Public Schools is comprised of seven (7) school board members. Board members are public officials who are elected or appointed to office as provided under state law.
     
    Applicable law defines the scope of the Board’s duties, powers, and authority. State law expressly provides that the statutory duties and powers of school boards shall be broadly construed to authorize any school board action that is within the comprehensive meaning of the terms of the duties and powers, if the action is not prohibited by the laws of the federal government or by the laws of this state. Further, one of the express statutory powers of the Board is the power do all things reasonable to promote the cause of education.
