The Center Line Board of Education is a seven-member board comprised of community members who are responsible for the education of public school students within the Center Line school district. The Board of Education sets the vision for the district through goals, policies and strategic planning. The Board of Education also approves the annual budget in June, following public hearings. The Board and Superintendent are responsible for a $33 million annual budget servicing 2700 students in 6 buildings.

The Board of Education is responsible for hiring and evaluating the Superintendent of Schools. The Superintendent is responsible for executing the policies set by the Board and for all operations in the school district. The Superintendent and Board evaluations are completed in March each year.

Board members serve six-year terms with elections even years in November. The annual Board of Education Organizational meeting is held in January when Board Officers are elected and Committee responsibilities are assigned. Vacancies on the Board are filled by appointment by the remaining Board members. Newly appointed Board members serve until the next scheduled Board election.
