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

United StatesEdit

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]
