The Lincoln Board of Education is committed to providing the highest quality education for all students in Lincoln Public Schools. The Board sees the primary mission of the schools to be the development of responsible adults:

  • who are productive citizens of a pluralistic community, nation and world;
  • who are prepared to learn throughout their lives; and
  • who are appreciative of the arts, history and culture.

As the elected governing body of the School District, the Board believes in sharing its decision-making processes with parents, students, other citizens and staff members. Board Members are elected by district to four-year terms and serve without pay.
