BOARD'S ROLE AND GOALS
What We Do
The Board of Education is the official governing body of the Pelham Public Schools. The seven members of the Board are elected at large by the voters of the Town of Pelham for three-year terms. The terms are staggered and members serve without pay. The Board establishes policies regarding the educational program and the management of the district. The Superintendent of Schools is responsible for administering school programs in the context of these policies.
In keeping with the tenets of the New York State Constitution and laws as well as rulings of the State Commissioner of Education, the Board’s four main areas of responsibility are:
Chair, members, and goals of three committees and liaison assignments.
Brief explanations of the committees on which administration, the Board, and in some cases community representatives collaborate on specific District initiatives
