Welcome to the Dexter Community School District's home page for the Board of Education. We hope this area of our website will provide you with all the information you need to know about the role of the Board for Dexter Schools and what you can do to work with us to continue the strong legacy of learning here in Dexter.

The formal foundation and guidelines for the Board are contained in Michigan laws and regulations and in our policies, which are available via the links on this page. 

Beyond those formal statutes, however, is the personal relationship that the Board has with district and the community. We welcome your input. Our Board Members page contains email addresses for each board member. Please feel free to contact us to let us know your thoughts. If you desire a response, let us know that, too.

The strength of Dexter is its people: from parents who instill the character and desire for learning in their children, to community members who demonstrate their value for learning through contributions of time and money, to businesses who promote the outstanding work of our students, to the staff and teachers who put it all together each day. All of us pull together to achieve our vision for Dexter's children: to "Champion Learning - Develop, Educate, and Inspire!" The Board and the State of Michigan believe we are doing a remarkable job - let's work together to continue that legacy.

--Michael Wendorf, President 
Dexter Community Schools Board of Education
