DMCS SCHOOL BOARD

DeMotte Christian Schools is a parent-run school system. We rely on our school society to help us elect members of the school board who collectively make important decisions about our schools.

School board members typically serve a three-year term and meet often throughout the year to address the needs of the schools.
