The school board supervises the day-to-day operations of the public schools, implements and enforces school laws/policies, cares for and manages the school divisions’ properties, provides for the consolidation of schools, determines the length of the school term, determines the methods of teaching, appoints the division superintendent, and hires, employs, and terminates personnel.Board Members 2016

In an effort to distribute documents associated with Board meetings more quickly, efficiently and cost effectively, Dinwiddie County School Board began leveraging the Internet to better communicate with the public starting February 2009. All Board meeting dates, information, minutes, and policies are now posted on BoardDocs.  The School Board meets the second (2nd) Tuesday of each month at the Pamplin Administration Building unless special arrangements by the Board has been made.
