Board of Education Duties
The Willsboro Central School Board of Education is a five-member board elected by the community. Members serve three-year terms.
The Board has legal responsibility for the operation of the entire district. The Board established the policies under which the school district is operated, and the Superintendent of Schools is responsible for administering the school program within the context of these policies.
The Board’s duties are derived from the State Constitution, the laws of New York State, and rulings of the New York State Commissioner of Education.
The Board’s four main areas of responsibility are:
– To establish all school district policies,
– To develop an annual budget for public approval,
– To approve or disapprove the Superintendent’s recommendations regarding personnel matters, and
– To approve or disapprove the Superintendent’s recommendations regarding many contracts the district must enter into.
The Board encourages parents and residents who have a concern about school matters to try first to resolve the problem at the level most directly involved. If a satisfactory solution cannot be reached at this level, contact the Superintendent of Schools, Mr. Justin Gardner.
Board of Education Meeting
Board meetings are held on the second Tuesday of each month in the Conference Room, beginning at 6:00 pm, unless otherwise noted.
