What does a Public School do?

A public school is the basis of public education. Public schools include all grades from preschool through high school, as well as public colleges and universities. Public schools are funded by taxpayer money and adhere to a curriculum and educational standards set at the state and federal levels.

Most public schools in a specific area are part of one school district managed by a superintendent of education and a school board. A public school board is comprised of independent voting members who are responsible for ensuring that taxpayer money buys the best education available for local students. In addition to the school board, nearly all public schools have a parent-teacher association (PTA) which gives parents a direct voice in the educational process.
