Hyde Park Schools Board of Education

  • Welcome to the Hyde Park Central School District's Board of Education Page.

    The Board of Education consists of seven non-salaried, uncompensated individuals who are elected by the community for staggered three-year terms and one student ex-officio board member.  Under the NY State Education Law, the Board is a corporate body responsible for:

    • the education of students who attend the schools of the district;
    • the preparation of the annual budget;
    • district adherence to state law and State Education Department regulations;
    • the establishment of policies;
    • and for the adoption of regulations concerning the conduct of our public schools.

    The Superintendent of Schools is charged with the administration of Board policies.

     Meetings and Minutes:                                                      

    During the school year, board meetings are generally held on the second and fourth Thursday of each month at 7:00 p.m, unless otherwise noted, meeting locations vary.  During the Summer Months, BOE Meetings are held at the District Office, 11 Boice Road and begin at 6:00 pm.  There is a link to the Media Release of our board meetings and the most current additions/ changes are found there. The meetings also appear on the District Calendar (top right of HPCSD.org home page) with meeting times and locations.  Changes, including weather related changes, will be noted on the district web page.

    Community members are invited and welcome to attend all Board meetings. Residents wishing to address the Board may do so during a "public participation" section of the meeting. If a speaker wishes to present materials, they should be given to the District Clerk for distribution to the Board before the meeting begins.

    Board agendas, minutes and presentations can be viewed by clicking on the BoardDocs link.  BOE meetings are live streamed and can be viewed by clicking the video link on the agenda, found on the HPCSD.org home page or going to HPCSD's YouTube page
