Southern Local Schools, with community involvement, will prepare our students to meet the challenges of tomorrow by modeling excellence and teaching fundamental skills today.

The Southern Local Board of Education is an elected body created by the Ohio General Assembly.  The Southern Local School Board consists of five elected, non-partisan positions.  Each member is elected to a four year term.  Members elected in alternating odd-year elections, with two members elected during one election and three members elected during the other.

Regular meetings are generally held on the fourth Monday of each month at 6:30 PM.  Occasionally meetings are changed due to a holiday or break from school.  All Board Meetings are held in the Community Classroom located in the Fitness Center Building.
