Board of Education

The members of the Chatham Central School District Board of Education invite the community to attend meetings to learn about the educational issues and topics the Board is considering. We value your interest and encourage you to come and voice any questions or concerns you may have about our schools.


Meeting Agendas, Minutes, and District Policies

The Board of Ed uses BoardDocs, a paperless meetings system, for our meeting agendas and associated documents. To access agendas, meeting minutes, and District policies please visit our BoardDocs website.

To view meeting agendas and minutes, click on the “Meetings” tab and then select the year, and then the date of the meeting you wish to view, then choose to view either the Agenda or Minutes. When selecting an agenda, it will display on the left-hand side of the screen. You can navigate through the agenda by clicking on the individual agenda items, which will open for display. The archive for minutes prior to May 2015 is available under the “Library” tab.

The nine members of Chatham’s Board of Education are volunteers who are elected to three-year terms and receive no pay. A president and vice president are selected each year at the July organizational meeting. The Board acts as a collective body to establish the policies under which the Chatham Central School District operates. The Superintendent of Schools is responsible for administering the school program within the context of these policies. Learn more about the role of Board of Education members.
