MAISD Board of Education

Board members are elected biennially.  Elections are held the first Monday in June of every odd year.  Candidates are elected by board members representing each of the MAISD's eleven local school districts.

We Appreciate Our Board Members

The month of January provides a unique opportunity to acknowledge a special group of volunteer elected officials in education. It is School Board Recognition Month, and it offers communities across Michigan a way to acknowledge the continuing efforts of local and ISD school board members in providing leadership and guidance to local school districts. Across the state, there are more than 4,000 school board members who dedicate countless hours of hard work to improving education for Michigan children.

Thank you to the members of the Muskegon Area Intermediate School District Board of Education:


Left to Right: Kevin Donovan, Trustee; Mary Schaab, Secretary; Lisa Tyler, Treasurer;
Wanda Lee Suits, President; Dwight Vines, Vice President
