The Board of Education is frequently the closest link between the community and the school aside from the students in the District. Board members are elected for four-year terms of office.

Board meetings are held at Squires Educational Center, 725 Center Street, Cassopolis, MI. All regularly scheduled board meetings are open to the public and it has always been the policy in Cassopolis to encourage attendance at these meetings.  Special meetings are called in advance; agendas and meetings are posted according to requirements.

The Board of Education sets school policies, approves the appointment of personnel, adopts budgets, approves courses of study and, in many instances, must be the final arbiter on many controversial issues. The Board and the Superintendent are concerned about an effective program of communication, keeping the community informed in a manner that understanding and confidence are engendered in the school program.


The Cassopolis Public Schools Board of Education will meet in Regular Session on the following Mondays for the 2020-2021 school year. If necessary, Special Sessions will be scheduled and posted according to the Open Meetings Act (OMA). NOTE: Meetings begin at 6:30 p.m.
