Board of Education
The Santa Cruz County Board of Education is comprised of seven trustees each of whom represents a designated trustee area within the County. Each member is elected by the voters of his or her trustee area and serves a four-year term. The terms are staggered so that three members are elected in an even-numbered election year and the other four members are elected the next even-numbered election year. The County Superintendent of Schools serves in the capacity of Secretary to the Board.
