Board of Education
The Catawba County Board of Education is an elected board of seven community leaders who serve as the governing body for Catawba County Schools. Each board member is elected by voters from the entire district and each member serves a four-year term. Their roles require a great deal of time, energy, care, and commitment to brighten futures for Catawba County Schools’ students. We are deeply grateful for the tireless dedication of our board members.
The board is responsible for establishing policies under which the district operates while acting within the framework of state and federal laws and while meeting the unique needs and concerns of the communities they serve. As civic leaders, our board members face complex and demanding challenges and contribute hundreds of hours each year leading Catawba County Schools to Engage, Inspire, and Empower.
