School district

From Simple English Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

A school district is a special-purpose district that runs local public primary and secondary schools in various nations.

United States[change | change source]

In the U.S, public schools belong to school districts. They are governed by school boards.

School districts in the Midwest and West often cross city borders. School districts in New England and the Mid-Atlantic regions tend to stay inside of city, township, and/or county boundaries.[1]

A unified school district includes both elementary schools and secondary schools (middle schools and high schools). There are also some school districts that operate only high schools, or only elementary schools.
