Board of Education
The Centerville Board of Education is made up of five elected citizens who are residents of Centerville-Washington Township. The board is the governing body of the school district. A board of education in Ohio acts for the public as one of the state's agencies, for the organization and administration of the public school system of the state.
Each board member is elected for a four-year term that begins on Jan. 1 after their election and expires on Dec. 31, except as otherwise provided by law.

Hearing of the Public
The Board of Education provides an opportunity for public comment at their meetings. Speakers are requested to address the board from the podium, to state their name and address (minor students only need to state their names). All who speak must limit their comments to no more than three minutes as the board does have pre-scheduled reports and action items on the agenda.
The board will listen to all who speak, but generally not engage in discussion or dialogue. Matters requiring follow-up will be directed to the superintendent. Individual board members can be contacted for a set meeting appointment, and written correspondence can be mailed to the board office.
Per board policy, the Hearing of the Public is limited to a total of 30 minutes. More information about Public Participation at Board Meetings is available by searching for PO0169.1 in the Board Policy Manual.
