Board of Education 

The North Syracuse Central School District Board of Education is the official policy-making body of the district. It establishes operational policies, sets educational goals and standards, evaluates program effectiveness, develops the annual school budget and balances educational needs with community resources. 

While the board oversees the education of students and is responsible for school district operations, it does not directly run the district’s day-to-day happenings, which is handled by the school district administrative team.

The North Syracuse Central School District Board of Education is made up of nine school district residents whose terms are staggered. School district residents elect board members annually on the third Tuesday of May, when they also vote on the district’s operational budget. Board members are not financially compensated for their service.  There are three seats per year that are open.  Incumbents whose terms expire, must also run for re-election if they wish to remain on the Board of Education. 

In addition to the nine board members, a high school senior is elected annually by their peers to serve a one-year term as a non-voting board member. The student member attends all public board meetings and is allowed to participate in all public discussions and voice their opinions. The student does not attend executive or exempt sessions, which are portions of the meeting in which the law allows board members to privately discuss such matters as proposed, pending or current litigation. District residents must authorize the position every two years during a public vote.

The board meeting schedule is determined each July at a reorganizational meeting. Meetings are typically held at 6 p.m. on Mondays at the Jerome F. Melvin Administrative Office Building (5355 West Taft Rd., N. Syracuse).
