Board Members

The Children’s Board is governed by 10 board members of the local community. Five are “ex-officio,” meaning they serve by virtue of the office they hold, including the Superintendent of Schools, a School Board member, the District Administrator from the Department of Children and Family Services, a County Commissioner, and a judge assigned to juvenile cases as designated by the Chief Judge. The other five members of the Board are Hillsborough County citizens appointed by the Governor of Florida.
