Richmond Community Schools has an elected seven-member Board. Three members each represent a specific district: District I- Part of Wayne Township; District 2-Parts of Wayne and Boston Townships; District 3-Parts of Wayne and Boston Townships; and At Large. Board members are elected in November and serve a four-year term of office.
As the policy making body for the school district, the Board of School Trustees is charged with providing a quality educational program for students in grades kindergarten through 12. The Board sets policy in accordance with the Indiana laws and the needs of the community.
Richmond Community Schools also has several committees established to engage in improving aspects of the services provided by RCS.
