Members of the Board of Education are elected by district voters to establish policy and direct the administration of our schools. Learn more about board members roles and responsibilities here.

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 a member may serve.

Board members serve volunteer three-year terms and receive no salaries or other compensation.

For more information or if you have any questions, please contact the district clerk by calling 518-629-3200.
