Board of Education
Canton Local Schools depend upon the active involvement of citizens working with teachers, school administrators, and Board members to provide quality education for Canton Local students. We encourage you to take an active role in school affairs, which includes attending meetings of the Board of Education.
The board meetings are held at Canton South High School in the Performing Arts Center at 7:00 p.m., the second Monday of each month (*except as noted).
