Carlisle School Board Openings

The mission of the Carlisle Community School District is to educate each child to their fullest potential. The local school board acts on behalf of the people of our school community to translate that education mission into reality. 


Strong leadership is critical to moving education forward in accomplishing our district’s mission. School board members play significant roles in their communities – they must have leadership, vision and dedication. These locally elected public officials are charged with accountability for student learning, determining educational goals, setting policy, overseeing school finances and more.


The Carlisle School Board is made up of 5 members from 4 Director Districts and 1 At-Large Position.  There are three open seats for the upcoming election, September 12, 2017.  They are:

  •     Director District 1 (Easter Lake area – northwest portion of the District)
  •     Director District 2 (Hartford area – south and east portion of the District)
  •     Director District At-Large Position.
