BOARD OF EDUCATION
The East Greenbush Central School District Board of Education is a team comprised of nine volunteer community members. Each of them is elected by District voters and serve three-year terms. The Board of Education acts in accordance with New York State law and regulations established by the Commissioner of the New York State Department of Education. The Board of Education is sensitive to the needs of its community. It responds by listening to the aspirations of its neighbors, and responds within the means of available resources. The Board accomplishes these goals in a variety of ways:
- Publishing a clear manual of policies
- Drafting and discussing openly an annual budget to be approved by voters
- Connecting the Central Administrative team to the community
- Working with the Central Administrative team in ratifying personnel matters
The Board of Education encourages community involvement. Residents are invited to join the Board at its meetings, which are held twice monthly. Locations are selected at various school buildings across the District, with the purpose that the Board may best reach all of the people it represents. The Board communicates with the public by way of this website, Facebook, and Twitter. It also publishes an annual comprehensive newsletter, FOCUS, which provides detailed information to District residents about school programs, initiatives, and finances.
The Board of Education and Central Administration have created a joint email account to receive your questions, comments, and concerns. You may contact them by clicking here. While the four members of the Central Administration team will receive these messages, members of the Board of Education will reply.
