BOARD OF EDUCATION

The Monroe-Woodbury Central School District is committed to the belief that an effective school program can only be accomplished by nurturing a partnership between the schools and the community.

Decisions made by your elected school board affect the education of our children and, therefore, the well-being of this community. Your school board can best represent its constituents when members of the community take the time to observe the board in action, express their opinions, ask questions, and communicate their wishes in the public setting.

Your continued interest and support will guarantee the excellence in our schools.


The School Board’s Role

The Monroe-Woodbury Board of Education is made up of nine non-paid citizens elected to serve overlapping terms of three years each.

Board elections are held each year on the third Tuesday in May. Polls are open at Central Valley Elementary School from 6 a.m. – 9 p.m.

New York State does not limit the number of terms a board member may serve. The school board’s powers and duties are derived from the State Constitution, the laws of New York State and the rulings of the New York State Commissioner of Education.


Roles and responsibilities of the board include:

·         Establishing district policies

·         Developing an annual budget for public approval

·         Serving as employing agent for the district

·         Approving curriculum

·         Maintaining the school buildings, and

·         Acting as a communication link between residents and the superintendent.


The school board generally meets on the second Wednesday of each month. Special meetings are scheduled if necessary. Public notice is given of all meeting dates, times and places on the district web site. Any citizen interested in obtaining information about the agenda may call the District Clerk at 845-460-6200, ext. 6203 during the week of the scheduled meeting.
