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 on May 18, 2021. Board members serve three-year terms.

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.

Petitions are due to the District Clerk no later than 30 days prior to the annual School Budget vote. Since April 18 falls on a Sunday, interested residents may submit petitions until 5:00 p.m. on Monday, April 19, 2021.

Prior to beginning the process of running for the BOE, please contact the Board Clerk at 518-674-7085.
