Welcome to the School Board Home Page

Welcome to a meeting of your school board! 

We are always pleased when you take the time to join us! Your interest in the Centennial School District and your presence at a board meeting are appreciated. Our board, as elected school board members, is interested in your concerns and opinions. Your participation is a vital part of our school system’s success.

We hope that attending a school board meeting will give you a better understanding of just how the school district operates. We encourage public participation in our meetings and welcome your comments. Time is set aside during the “Public Forum” portion of each regular board meeting to hear the views of the community, staff, and students. If you are interested in addressing the board, please review the procedures for public comment listed under Public Forum below. If you attend a board meeting just to listen and learn, that is great! Just sit back and get a feel for “democracy in action." 

PUBLIC COMMENT: During hybrid meetings, those wishing to make public comments must submit information via an on-line form which can be found here. 

If you wish to reach out directly to the Board, you may email your comments or concerns to

Copies of the board meeting agenda, as well as minutes from previous meetings, are available on our district website. The board tries to have a brief recess break at approximately 8:00 pm, though, you are free to leave whenever you wish.

We encourage you to submit your comments and questions to the superintendent’s office. All items on the agenda originate through the superintendent’s office. If there is a particular item that you feel should be addressed by the board, please contact the superintendent’s office. You may also write or call to request a personal conference with the superintendent by contacting:
