The Gardner Edgerton School District Board of Education comprises citizen volunteers elected by the community. They develop policies and procedures for the school district's operation and the management of its tax dollars. Each school board member is a local community resident, and all have children attending district schools or graduating from Gardner Edgerton schools.

Meetings of the Board of Education are open to the public. The Board desires to be responsive to the community it represents and encourages citizens to participate in its meetings. As a taxpayer and citizen of Kansas, you are a partner in the public school system.

Board Meetings are held at 6:00 p.m. unless otherwise stated at the District Offices Building, 231 E. Madison Street in Gardner, Kansas (in the Board of Education meeting facility). Board Member and Cabinet dinner is served before all Regular Board Meetings from 5:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m. in the Technology Conference Room. No business will be discussed or conducted during this time, and board members/cabinet are free to come and go during this time.
