A local board of education is an agency of New York State that is governed by state law and the regulations of the commissioner of education. The Board of Education of the Ravena-Coeymans-Selkirk (RCS) Central School District is made up of nine members who are elected by qualified voters of the district. All board members run "at large" in the district and serve without pay for three-year terms. New York State law does not limit the number of terms a board member may serve. The board’s five main areas of responsibility are:
The decisions of your elected board of education affect your child, your child's future, your tax rate, and the well-being of your community. The board urges your participation in such important matters and encourages the school district and the community to work together to provide the best possible educational program for students in the RCS district.
