2100 School Board Legal Status

The Board of Education is a nine-member board elected by district residents. Each member of the Board serves for three years. Typically, three members are elected each year to ensure that the terms of office will not all expire in the same year. Board members are responsible for school district management and policy-making.

The legal status of the Board is that of a corporate body established pursuant to the laws of New York State. Any liability of the district is a liability of the Board of Education as a corporation and not that of the members of the Board as individuals.
