• Public Notice: Governing Board Meeting Procedures - August 9, 2021

    The five CUSD Governing Board members are elected by the voters of the Chandler Unified School District.  They work to maintain high levels of excellence in education.
    The Chandler Unified School Governing Board, like many elected bodies, contain many diverse opinions and ideas. Individual board members retain their First Amendment rights to free speech; however, personal comments do not represent the official position of the District. An individual school board member’s authority over school matters comes from casting a vote as a member of the governing board in an official governing board meeting.
    By law, the Governing Board sets all district policies and has final authority over all school district business. The Chandler Unified School District Policy Manual may be viewed at the district office or by clicking here. (Click on the link labeled "Enter Public Site" and then on the tab labeled "Policies.")
    The budget for the Chandler Unified School District may be viewed by clicking here: Arizona Department of Education Website. (Select "Chandler Unified District" from the drop-down menu, and click to submit.)
    Chandler Unified School District will post all notices of the Governing Board meeting agendas on this website (see meeting agenda located on the left) and on the bulletin board outside of the main entrance to the district office located at 1525 W. Frye Road, Chandler, AZ 85224.

  • The Chandler Unified School District Governing Board

    Serving on a school district governing board is a rewarding job with enormous responsibility. Governing board members are elected, unpaid volunteers who have a passion for the public education system, are willing to invest enormous time and energy into learning about issues that affect our schools, and are committed to providing the best education for our students.

    Successful board members possess a sincere desire to serve the community, communicate and collaborate effectively with others, and demonstrate respect for diverse perspectives. They attend board meetings and engage in related board work, bringing their experience to bear while also striving to become knowledgeable on a multitude of complex matters involving policies, finance and curriculum. Effective school governing boards work hard to cultivate positive relationships among all stakeholders and plan wisely to shape the future.
