Board of Trustees

The Soquel Union Elementary School District is governed by a five-member board. The Governing Board works in conjunction with the Superintendent to create an educational vision for our district. A major focus of the Governing Board is board policy and fiduciary responsibilities. The Board of Trustees meets most first and third Wednesdays during the school year and has a reduced schedule of meetings in the summer.


The board and district publish a Governance Handbook which guides their values, roles, culture, and processes.

Board Governance Calendar

In an effort to provide our community at large with an overview of topics that will be discussed at future board meetings, our Board of Trustees has created a Board Governance Calendar. This calendar is a living document and will be updated and changed throughout the school year.

If you have any questions regarding this calendar please contact the Superintendent's Office at (831) 464-5639.
