The MTSD Board of Education is made up of seven citizens elected at large by voters in Mequon and Thiensville. Members are elected to three-year overlapping terms, with elections for at least two seats held every year. At the end of a three-year term, members may run for re-election to successive terms. Voting takes place during spring elections in April, and terms begin with the board business meeting thereafter. If a vacancy occurs in the middle of a term, the school board names an appointee to serve until the next district election.
At the annual organizational meeting in April or May, the board elects officers. The Superintendent is an ex-officio member of the Board who facilitates the work of the board and is responsible to the board for providing leadership to the district and carrying out board directives.
The board of education in the Mequon-Thiensville School District is one of a few in the State of Wisconsin who perform their public service on a voluntary basis.
