School Board

The Stillwater Area Public School District is governed by a seven member School Board. Each member is elected at large and serves alternating four-year terms. Elections for three and then four seats are held every two years. 

All School Board meetings are open to the public, unless specified as a closed or executive session in accordance with Minnesota statute. Board meetings are generally held on the second and fourth Thursday every month. Meetings are held at the Oak Park Building, 6355 Osman Ave. N, Stillwater, MN (unless otherwise noted). School board learning sessions and other meetings may also be scheduled as needed throughout the year. 

NOTE: Board meetings will automatically play on the YouTube channel when the meeting begins. 

Sign-up is held electronically the week of a regular business meeting beginning on Monday at 8 a.m. and will close fifteen minutes prior to the board meeting.

Due to time limitations, we will limit the number of speakers to 15, who may speak for 3 minutes each. 

You will either receive an email stating that you are one of the fifteen speakers or that this week's 15 spots have been filled. 

You can always share concerns and comments with the School Board by emailing

Thank you for your engagement in our schools.
