Welcome to the Windsor Central School District’s Board of Education web page.

It is our privilege to serve the students, staff and community members of our district. We are all dedicated to providing our students with a world-class educational experience, preparing them for success in life after high school. We have an exceptional collaboration of administrators, teachers and staff working hard to accomplish this.

What Do We Do?
The Board of Education consists of seven voting members who have been elected at large by the residents of our district to three-year terms, unless they have been elected or appointed to fill a partial term. Each member serves voluntarily and receives no compensation for their service. The Board of Education is the governing body of our district and is responsible for conducting the business of the school district within the laws of the State and the regulations of the New York State Commissioner of Education., including establishing policies, approving and monitoring the budget and the financial planning of the district. Administration of the district is delegatedby the Board of Education to the Superintendent of Schools, who serves as the Chief Executive Officer of the Board of Education.

What authority does a single Board Member have?
The Board of Education is only a board when a majority of the members are present at a meeting. The individual board member cannot act on behalf of the entire Board. All actions of the Board of Education require a positive vote of at least four members, known as a quorum.

When Do We Meet?
The Board of Education meets a minimum of one time per month on a Tuesday evening. The meetings begin at 6:00 p.m. and are rotated through the schools in the district throughout the year. All meetings are open to the public and we encourage residents to attend. Our meeting schedule can be found with the link here.

What Do We Discuss at Meetings?

The Board of Education focuses on several topics at their meetings, largely dependent on the time of year. Early in the school year, the Board meets to discuss the strategic planning of the district. Throughout the year presentations are made by district personnel to keep the Board well-informed of what is happening in each building, and personnel changes are approved all year long. Budget preparation and planning discussions occur for several months of the year as well. The meeting agenda can be found on the Board of Education page by going to Board Docs.

Can I address the Board of Education?
Yes you can. The President will open the public comment section of the meeting. Any individual wishing to address the Board of Education will be asked to stand, state their name, address and topic of discussion. You will be given three minutes in which to speak. This time should be used to address specific school matters and cannot be used to attack any person or person, nor comments on executive session subjects.

Will the Board of Education respond to concerns made by the public in a public meeting?

No. The President will thank the individual for their comments. The Board of Education may direct the Superintendent of Schools to prepare a written response. In all cases, the chain of command should be followed when seeking resolution to an issue. Start at the level closest to the issue (teacher, coach, principal, etc) and progresses to the next levels from there. If your issue does not get resolved it can be brought to the Board of Education.
