Board of Education
Beginning April 25, SSPPS School Board Meetings will take place at Fleming Field Airport. During renovations of the SSP City Hall, the meetings will be temporarily moved to the airport conference rooms at 1725 Henry Ave, South St. Paul. Meetings can still be accessed in-person, live on Comcast Channel 15, livestreamed online, or through a recorded version posted to the SSPPS website the next day.
The School Board of South St. Paul Public Schools (SSPPS), Special School District 6, is comprised of seven community members, elected at-large on Election Day in November of even-numbered years. To avoid having all seven seats up for election simultaneously, the seats are balloted on alternating basis, with four spots being available one year, and the remaining three being available two years later. The process then repeats itself. Members are elected to four-year terms.
The SSPPS School Board operates under a governance structure which is responsible for setting policies that ensure the successful execution of the District's mission. The Board is also responsible for hiring a superintendent to administer the District's educational program and carryout Board policies, and for setting an annual budget that ensures proper and effective use of public funds.
