A local board of education is an agency of New York State governed by New York state law and the regulations of the commissioner of education. The Guilderland Central School District Board of Education has the power to develop policies, rules and regulations for the operation of our school system. There are nine residents who serve, without pay, on the district's school board. On the third Tuesday in May, three members are elected on a rotating basis to a three-year term of office.
