    GENESEO CENTRAL SCHOOL BOARD OF EDUCATION

    2021 - 2022 School Budget/Election Information Page

    As of June 25, 2021, the executive orders regarding virtual Board of Education Meetings have been lifted.  All Board of Education meetings going forward will be in person.

    What is a Board of Education?

    A school board member in New York State serves as a state official.  The board's powers are derived from the state Constitution, laws of New York State, and rulings of the state Commissioner of Education.

    As elected representatives, board members ensure that the school remains responsive to the needs of district residents by serving as a link between school and community.  The Board of Education establishes official policy and sets goals for the school district.  Board decisions can be made only by the board acting as a whole in a public meeting.  

    Etiquette

    Board meetings are conducted under the Open Meetings Law, but are not open forums for the community.  On the agenda, there is "Community Relations" time which the public may address the Board regarding agenda items or other comments or questions.  You must sign in on the sheet provided at the meeting, if you would like to address the Board.

    Board Member Terms

    The Board is composed of seven community members who are elected to 3-year terms by District residents as part of the school budget vote, which occurs on the third Tuesday of May, each year.

    • David Dwyer, President - term expires 6/30/24
