Members are public officials who serve without pay for three-year terms. As our elected representatives and as officers of New York State, the board must carry out duties imposed by the state's Legislature, Board of Regents, and Commissioner of Education.
The school board has no legal or formal connection with any other local government body. Its functions are carried out through district officers, administrators, and personnel.
