Board of Education
The Board of Education is a group of local residents elected by you to govern your school district. It consists of seven members, each serving a three year term, without pay. In general, the Board defines local school district policies and fulfills the requirements set by the New York State Education Department. Community residents are invited and encouraged to attend and speak at all regular meetings and public hearings of the Board of Education and its Committees, except those held in Executive Session, as authorized by the Freedom of Information Act. Speakers may address the Board at regular meetings during the agenda item: First Invitation to Public. In addition, views may be aired on specific items by addressing a letter to either the Superintendent of Schools or the Board of Education President.

Reevaluate current programs in order to achieve meaningful educational opportunities for all learners to help realize their full potential.
Increase long-term fiscal sustainability by reviewing outside vendor contracts, continuing to assess feasibility of green initiatives, and applying for appropriate educational grants.
Engage community in efforts to support our schools as a unified community asset.
