Information for Interested Candidates

The Pelham Board of Education is seeking interested candidates to fill the remaining one-year terms left on two open seats vacated by Dr. Christa Acampora and Tom Imperato, who both resigned from the Board earlier this month. Interested applicants should complete this application and return via email to Board of Education President Sue Bratone Childs by 5 pm on Friday, August 3, 2018.

This process follows past practice and precedent when vacancies have occurred mid-term. All applications will be screened and it is anticipated that candidates will be interviewed by members of the Board of Education in mid-August with the hope of appointing both seats by the end of August. The terms of both open seats are set to expire in 2019 and will be filled during the regular election cycle in May 2019, at which time three total seats will be up for election.

All applicants should meet the New York State eligibility requirements for serving as a Board of Education member and must be:

  • 18 years of age or older
  • Able to read and write English
  • A United States citizen
  • Have resided in the school district for at least one year
