Update for 2020-21 Board of  Education Election

In an executive order issued on Friday, May 1, New York Governor Andrew M. Cuomo announced that this year’s school budget vote and board of education election will take place on June 9, exclusively by absentee ballot due to the COVID-19 public health crisis.

The order also waived the minimum signature threshold for board of education candidates and states that candidates must meet all of the other requirements to run for the board. These include being qualified voters, must read and write, and having lived in the district continuously for one year prior to the election.

Prospective candidates must complete a M-W JUNE 2020 Board Petition and make an appointment with District Clerk Donna Vitucci, [email protected]. This petition must be received by the District Clerk (via fax, mail, or email) not later than Monday, May 11, 2020, by 5:00 p.m.
