Fun Fact!

  • Our district prides itself on giving our students a voice. At the school budget and school board vote (Tuesday, May 18, 2021) a resolution was passed authorizing the Board of Education to have a Salem high school student be permitted to serve as an ex officio, non-voting member of Salem’s Board of Education, subject to the requirements of education law. The student must be a senior and attended Salem CSD for at least the past two school years.
