Durham Public Schools Board of Education

  • DPS Board of Education

    Durham's Board of Education consists of seven non-partisan members. One member is elected at-large, four are elected from specific districts, and two are elected from consolidated districts. Board members serve four-year staggered terms.

    Board members are paid a regular monthly stipend of $800 per month; the chairman receives $900 per month. Board members are also reimbursed for travel expenses incurred for attending workshops or conferences or for conducting official board business.  

    The Board of Education elects a chairperson and vice-chairperson to serve one-year terms. The superintendent of schools acts as an ex officio member of the board and serves as secretary of the board.
