Schuylerville Central School District is governed by a seven-member elected Board of Education. Each board member serves on a volunteer basis. Members of Schuylerville’s Board of Education oversee the operations of the school district. They are elected by community residents for five-year terms and serve the district on a voluntary basis. You are eligible to run for a Board seat if you have resided in the district for at least one year prior to the vote, are at least 18 years of age and a United States citizen. Candidates must file nominating petitions with Board Clerk Judi Dunkel 30 days before the vote. The petition must be signed by qualified residents totaling at least two percent of those voting in the 2019 budget vote or 25 qualified residents (whichever is greater). *The NYS legislature amended Education Law §2018-a to provide that, for the May 2021 election, candidates for a vacant board of education seat in a union free, central and common school district must have their petition signed “by 25 qualified voters of the district, or two percent of the voters who voted in the 2019 annual election of the members of the board of education, whichever is greater.”
Board elections are typically held at the same time as budget votes. The next budget vote and board elections will be held on May 18, 2021. More information will be forthcoming regarding how the vote will be held based on COVID-19 rules and regulations from New York State.

Agendas and Minutes
The Schuylerville Central School District’s Board of Education has begun to use “BoardDocs®,” a system designed to provide easy access to information and to eliminate the need to copy all of the documentation required for Board of Education meetings. Information is also more quickly available to the public via the Internet.
Now, meeting agendas, proposed resolutions, and background information is available at the click of a mouse. By visiting the website, Schuylerville’s Public Link to Board Docs, an individual can view past meeting agendas and minutes, as well as view items proposed for the next Board of Education meeting. Typically, the agendas are available three days before a scheduled meeting.
