The Gallatin Gateway School District Board has a five-member board of trustees*, each with one vote. The superintendent serves as the board's chief adviser on educational matters and as the district's educational leader. The superintendent does not have voting rights. The Gallatin Gateway School board represents the people of the district as the legal body that establishes educational policies and sets goals and objectives for the district. These policies and goals are carried out by the superintendent and staff under the board’s direction.
Gallatin Gateway School Board member terms of office are three years and overlap to ensure continuity of board leadership. School board members donate their time, receiving no pay for their public service. They are accountable to you, the Gallatin Gateway School community, and to the state and federal governments.
*As a class 3 district, Gallatin Gateway School is required to have a three member Board of Trustees. At the school election on May 2003, the District chose to increase the Board to five members.
