Petition to run for the Board of Education is now available

The petition to seek a spot on the Board of Education is now available. Those interested in seeking one of the two spots open on the Board of Education during the May 21 community vote.

Candidates need to collect signatures from 40 community members and submit the petition to the Business Office, 900 Preddice Parkway, by 5 p.m. on Monday, April 22.

The seats now held by Colleen Benedetto and Dan Feinberg are up for election this year.

Board members serve three year terms at no pay.

The NYS School Boards Association recently released a video, The School Board Experience, to prepare candidates for serving on school boards.
