Sioux City citizens elect seven members to serve as their representatives on the Board of Education for the Sioux City Community School District. In turn, the Board is responsible for the governance of public education in Sioux City. 

Board members in Iowa are elected to four-year terms. Elections are held every other year on the second Tuesday in November, and new members are sworn in at the annual meeting. At this meeting, the Board elects a Board president and vice president from among its members. Election of Board leadership occurs annually.  

In addition to their responsibilities on the Board, members also serve on a variety of District committees, represent Sioux City Community Schools on a variety of local, state, and national organizations, and maintain cooperative relationships with both national organizations and local governmental bodies.
