The Moraga School District is governed by the MSD Governing Board. There are five Moraga School District Governing Board members. Each Board member is elected by the community at large and typically serves a four-year term. Board elections are held in November of even-numbered years.  The next election for MSD Governing Board members is November 8, 2016.  There will be two four-year terms and one two-year term for MSD Governing Board members on the November 8, 2016 ballot.  Persons interested in serving as a Governing Board member are encouraged to attend a school board informational meeting on July 13, 2016 at 6:30 PM at the Joaquin Moraga Intermediate School library, 1010 Camino Pablo, Moraga, CA 94556.

The powers and duties of the Board include governance, executive and judicial functions. Among its many duties, the Board adopts the annual budget and approves all expenditures; establishes district policy; authorizes employment of personnel; approves curriculum, textbooks and courses of study; and makes decisions on all contracts.

New Start Time for JMIS

JM currently begins school at 7:50 AM. There is no change to the 8:25 AM elementary start time.

3rd Grade Students to follow Early Schedule Aug. 22 - Sept. 9

Moraga School District third grade students will follow an 8:25 AM to 1:55 PM instructional schedule the first three weeks of school, August 22 through September 9. Third grade students will follow an 8:25 AM to 3:05 PM instructional schedule starting on September 12 and for the remainder of the school year.  


The three week early release period will provide third grade teachers time to individually assess their students reading and math levels to group students for instruction, evaluate a student's reading accuracy level, comprehension, and fluency, select texts that will be productive for instruction, and identify students who may be eligible for additional support.  Third grade teachers will contact parents to schedule dates and times for individual student assessment appointments.
