Board of Education Elections
Members of the Board of Education are elected by the voters of the district to establish policy and direct the administration of our schools.
Individuals are eligible for election to the Board if they are qualified voters of the district (district resident, U.S. citizen, 18 and older) and can read and write. New York State Education Law does not limit the number of terms of office a member may serve. Board members receive no salaries or other compensation.
Voting on candidates for board membership takes place at the Annual Election of the School District (Budget Vote) in May.
Board nomination petitions become available each March for that year’s election at the district office. Each nominating petition must contain a minimum of 25 valid signatures and must be returned to the district office 30 days prior to the school district’s Annual Meeting (Budget Vote).
