Board of Education

About the Board of Education

The Williamsville Board of Education is composed of nine representatives elected at-large by residents of the Williamsville Central School District. It is the responsibility of the Board to set policy which determines and facilitates attainment of the goals of public education in the Williamsville Central School District.

Officers of the Board are elected annually at an Organizational Meeting held in early July. Members of the Board are elected to staggered three-year terms.

Board of Education members give freely of their time and are not paid. Board members must take a sworn oath of office that they will faithfully discharge the duties for the Williamsville Central School District according to the best of their ability.

The Board's powers and duties are derived from the New York State Constitution, the laws of New York State, and the rulings of the New York State Commissioner of Education. Board members sign an oath of responsibility as an agent of New York State for the education of all children and youth of the state. They do not involve themselves in operating the District, but do receive reports on the happenings in the District and regular progress reports on district goals and initiatives.

Board of Education meetings are generally held on Tuesday's at 7:00 p.m., unless otherwise indicated, in the District Office Boardroom.

The Board of Education's main areas of responsibility are:

  • Establish district policies;
  • Develop an annual budget for public approval;
  • Vote on the Superintendent's recommendations on personnel matters and contracts;
  • Review courses of study and textbooks;
  • Act as a communication link between residents and the Superintendent;
  • Employ a Superintendent who is responsible for the day-to-day operation of the district and administration of board policies. The Superintendent develops policies, programs and plans for board action. 

The Board of Education annually adopts a school district budget to determine the number of staff members, to reflect changes in student needs, and to support changes in program offerings. The budget is presented directly to voters for approval on the third Tuesday in May.

No person or group of persons acts in the name of the board. All motions require a majority vote before the board can act. A board member is in an official capacity only during an official board meeting.
