Board of Education
About the Board of Education
The Board of Education is the policy-making body for the Temple City Unified School District. It is comprised of five elected members and one appointed student member. Elected board members serve four-year terms and the student member serves a one-year term.
Board Members must be qualified electors residing within the boundaries of the District. Elections are held biennially. Three board members are elected one year. Two years later, two other Board members are elected. The student member is elected by the Associated Student Body of Temple City High School.
Notice Regarding Board Elections:
In an effort to consolidate board elections with the statewide general election, the Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors approved a change that allows the District to hold elections on even numbered years instead of the previously set odd numbered year. Effective November 2018, Board member elections will be held on the first Tuesday, following the first Monday, in November of even numbered years.
Compensation & Benefits
TCUSD's Board members receive a monthly compensation of $240 and the District pays $9,000 towards the cost of health and welfare benefits for Board members. Not all Board members take full advantage of the District's benefit contribution; unused monies are returned to the District's unrestricted General Fund.
