Hancock Public School District



Hancock Public Schools Board of Education

The Hancock Public Schools Board of Education exists for the purpose of providing a system of free, public education for children in grades K-12.

Philosophy of the Board:

The Board of Education is a legal entity for providing a system of public education within a geographic area of the State of Michigan. The system was created by, and is governed by, State statutes. Members of a Board are chose by citizens to represent them and the State in governance of the local schools.

The Board has the dual responsibility for implementing statutory requirements pertaining to public education and for meeting the desires of residents. While the Board has an obligation to determine and assess citizen desires, it is understood that when the voters elect delegates to represent them in the conduct of specified educational programs, they, at the same time, are endowed with the authority to exercise their best judgment in determining policies, making decisions, and approving procedures for carrying out the responsibility.
