Board of School Directors

A nine-member elected school board, all of whose members live within the school district boundaries, governs the Elizabethtown Area School District. The school board is locally elected and serves as the legislative body for the community. The Board convenes school board meetings two times a month (typically the second and fourth Tuesday of each month at 6 p.m.), except for July (no meeting). Community members are welcome to attend the meetings in-person or virtually and are encouraged to provide citizen comments.
