Are you interested in running for the Board of Education?

Voters in the Averill Park Central School District will elect two members to the Board of Education this year using absentee ballot. Board members serve three-year terms.

Based on new guidelines from the Governor’s Office, anyone interested in running for the Board of Education must email or mail a letter of interest to the Board Clerk. This letter should be received no later than 5:00 p.m. on May 11. The letter must state your interest to run for election and include your name and address. The Governor’s Executive Order waived the provision that required signatures for candidate petitions.

The Board Clerk, Linda Primeau, can be reached by email at primeaul@apcsd.org or by mail at 146 Gettle Road, Averill Park, NY 12018.

Individuals are eligible for election to the Board if they are qualified voters of the district (district resident, U.S. citizen, 18 and older) and can read and write. New York State Education Law does not limit the number of terms of office a member may serve. Board members receive no salaries or other compensation.
