About the Board of Education

The Waterville Board of Education is composed of seven members who are elected by District residents to serve three-year terms. Members volunteer their time and receive no compensation. Collectively, the Board of Education has legal responsibility for the operation of the entire District. The Board establishes the policies under which the school District operates and the Superintendent of Schools is responsible for administering the school program within the context of these policies.

The Board’s powers and duties are derived from the State Constitution, the laws of New York State and rulings of the State Commissioner of Education. The Board’s four main areas of responsibility are to:

  • Establish all school District policies.
  • Develop an annual budget for public approval.
  • Approve or disapprove the Superintendent’s recommendations regarding personnel matters and the many contracts the District must enter into.
  • Act as a two-way communications link between residents and the Superintendent.


Imagining, designing, and creating best futures.


The Waterville Central School District, a partnership of students, staff, families and community is dedicated to educating the whole-child for personalized success.
