Office of Board Governance

The Office of Board Governance provides support — in cooperation with, but independent of, the Superintendent and the Chief Accountability Officer — to the Milwaukee Board of School Directors in effectively and efficiently governing the District. This support includes, but is not limited to:

  • reviewing and proposing policy;
  • conducting fiscal analyses;
  • preparing communications for the Board and public;
  • fulfilling statutory or other legal requirements;
  • preparing meeting notices and agendas for the meetings of the Board and its Committees;
  • serving as the Board's secretary, clerk, and parliamentarian; and
  • maintaining records of the Board's actions.

The Office provides coordination among the Board, the Office of Accountability and Efficiency, and the Superintendent's office.

The Office, by providing the Board with the most independent information available, assists the Board in its function of establishing district goals, priorities, rules, and policies.

Under the Office of Board Governance, the audit function is an integral part of the Board's decision-making process. Audit Services is responsible for conducting financial and performance (operational and program evaluation) audits and for ensuring that the District fully accounts for its activities, including:

  • justification of programs which use public resources;
  • economy, efficiency, and effectiveness of resource identification, acquisition, and application; and
  • the effect of resource application
