The Heber-Overgaard Unified School's Governing Board consists of five elected community members. These dedicated individuals volunteer their time and talents to help our administrators and staff deliver the best possible educational programs and strategies to our community's students. This includes helping district administrators set policy, hire and retain quality staff, and encourage parent involvement.
Governing board meetings for the Heber-Overgaard Unified School District are on the second Tuesday of each month at 7:00 p.m. The board may call special meetings from time to time. We hold all meetings at the Performance Arts Center at Capps Middle School. If you would like to address the board during a meeting, please contact us prior to the meeting for a request form. Our policy manual is available for your viewing.
