The School Board is Richmond's local governing educational body and is composed of one Board representative from each of the nine districts. Board members are elected by the community members to a four-year term of office. The Chairman, Vice Chairman and other officers are elected by the other members of the School Board.
Time and Place of Meetings
The School Board meets on the first and third Monday of each month beginning at 6:00 p.m. During the COVID-19 pandemic, the School Board is meeting virtually and their meetings are live streamed on the RPS Facebook page. For in-person meetings, the School Board meets in the School Board Room on the 17th floor of City Hall located at 301 North Ninth Street, unless otherwise noted (in-person meetings are also livestreamed to the RPS Facebook page). If the Monday of the School Board meeting is a holiday, the meeting will be held on Tuesday.

School Board Mission Statement
Richmond Public Schools will prepare our students to become successful, contributing members of society through innovative and compassionate learning communities.
BoardDocs (Notices, Agenda, Videos, & Minutes)
Because our cloud-based solutions are so easy to use, our organization will operate more effectively from day one. BoardDocs' next-generation, paperless services allow organizations to significantly improve the way they create and manage board packets, access information and conduct meetings.
Video recordings of all School Board meetings are immediately available following meetings on the RPS Facebook Video Archive. Videos are also available in BoardDocs and on our YouTube channel once processed.
