The Athens Area School District is divided into three regions. There are nine school board directors, three from each region, who are elected for terms of four years. The Board of Directors represents the community by developing policies, budgets and having a vision for the future of the school district.
The Board meets on the second and third Tuesday of each month, unless otherwise noted. Please see Board Meeting Dates for locations. Special meetings are scheduled as needed. Any special or emergency meeting would be advertised at least one day prior to the meeting in The Morning Times. If a change is made to the schedule, a notice will be posted on the front entrance of the respective school building and the Administration Office door. Meetings are open to the public.
