CHENANGO COUNTY – What does it take to be a school board member? What are the roles and responsibilities of those serving on a board of education? Answering these questions and more will be the focus of two free forums next week sponsored by The Chenango Foundation.
“As schools across New York State face unprecedented budget challenges, it is more important than ever to have dedicated community members willing and able to step forward to take leadership roles on district school boards,” explained the organization’s chairperson, Kevin Walsh.
According to Walsh, the foundation’s board of directors recognize the importance of school board service and the support of public education.
“It is equally important to ensure prospective school board members have a clear understanding of the roles and responsibilities of the board and its members,” he explained.
