The Circle of Nations School (CNS) has a six member school board selected primarily on the basis of student enrollment. Representation by the number of students from a tribe or area of the United States will identify five of the Six members. The Sisseton-Wahpeton Sioux Tribe has a permanent membership because they are our sponsoring tribe. Board members are appointed by the various participating tribes and then become members of the CNS school board. The appointment is for a four year term.

The Board and the School Administration actively pursue the school whereby Native American children from reservations and urban areas nationwide could be appropriately served in a Native American culturally oriented school. CNS has served students in grades 4 through 8 from over 37 different tribal affiliations.

Present Members are as follows:

Myrna Thompson, Sisseton Wahpeton Oyate

Charmayne Bohanon, Spirit Lake Sioux Tribe

Tim Sumner, Red Lake Band Of Chippewa - Chair

Joe White Mountain Jr, Standing Rock Sioux Tribe 

Justin Gray Hawk, Ft. Peck Assiniboine & Sioux Tribes - Vice Chair
