The Rootstown Board of Education is composed of five members elected to four-year terms.
Board members receive the agenda and supporting materials several days in advance of a board meeting. If it appears that quick action is taken on an item, it may be because the topic has been studied for several weeks or questions were answered in advance of the meeting.
All efforts will be made to post the agenda to this location no later than the Friday before the Monday board meeting. Please refer to the Board Meeting Calendar for a list of board meeting dates for the current year.
