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

Meetings of the Board of Education are open to the public. The Board desires to be responsive to the community which it represents and encourages citizens to take an active part 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. There will be no business discussed or conducted during this time, and board members/cabinet are free to come and go during this time.
