Board of Education

Vacancy Zone 1: Application Information (Posted 9.30.15)

Seven elected, non-paid persons comprise the Board of Education and have primary authority for establishing policies governing the operation of the college and adopting the college's annual budget. Their charge is to serve the development of programs and services which they believe will best serve the people of Lincoln County.

Board members are elected by popular vote to represent one of seven geographic zones within the community college district. Members must be residents of the zone they serve and are elected to four-year terms on a rotating basis. Each year, the Board elects a Chair and Vice Chair.

The Board holds public meetings on the third Wednesday of each month in Newport, Lincoln City, or Waldport. Additional meetings are scheduled as needed. The public is invited to attend.
