School Board

Rush City School Board

The local school board acts on behalf of the people of the community to translate an education mission into reality. 

Independent School District #139 is governed by a six-member school board, elected by the public through an odd-year election process, serving four-year terms. Regular School Board monthly meetings are typically held on the third Thursday of each month at 6:00 pm.  Work Sessions are scheduled for the first Thursday of each month at 6:00 pm.  School Board meetings are open to the public and you are encouraged to attend. To have an item placed on the Board agenda for discussion, please contact the District Office at 320-358-4855 at least five days prior to the meeting.

"The promise of Rush City Schools is to create global citizens who are lifelong learners"
