Role and Responsibilities
The Board of School Directors is the policy-making body of the District, deriving its legal authority from the statutes of the State of Pennsylvania. It sets the exemplary standards that best serve the interests of the children and the residents of the District. Board members are elected by popular vote to two- or four-year terms. Service as a Director is voluntary. The Board selects the Superintendent as the District's Executive Officer and delegates the responsibility for implementing its policies and priorities to the Superintendent.
The School Board encourages residents to attend meetings and welcomes comments and suggestions on any topic from its constituents.
There are a number of ways to communicate with the Board. Written correspondence may be addressed to the Board of School Directors at the Central Administration Offices (CAO). Comments or questions may also be sent via e-mail to email@example.com or faxed to 412-369-5408. In all cases, copies will be forwarded to all Directors.
In addition, residents are invited to speak at public Board meetings during the designated time periods indicated on each agenda. Comments related to voting items are always heard prior to Board action. Individuals who sign up to speak in advance are allowed five minutes, but time is also allotted for those who do not register in advance in two minute increments.
