2021-2022 Board of Education
 
The Board of Education is made up of nine members. There is no monetary compensation for serving on the board, however, you must take a sworn oath of office that you will faithfully discharge the duties for the Williamsville Central School District according to the best of your ability.
 
The Board's powers and duties are derived from the New York State Constitution, the laws of New York State, and the rulings of the New York State Commissioner of Education. Board members sign an oath of responsibility as an agent of New York State for the education of all children and youth of the state. They do NOT involve themselves in operating the school district, but DO receive reports on the happenings in the school district and regular progress reports on district goals and initiatives.

The Board of Education's main areas of responsibility are:
  • Establish district policies;
  • Develop an annual budget for public approval;
  • Vote on the Superintendent's recommendations on personnel matters and contracts;
  • Review courses of study and textbooks;
  • Act as a communication link between residents and the Superintendent; and
  • Employ a Superintendent who is responsible for the day-to-day operation of the district and administration of board policies. The Superintendent develops policies, programs and plans for board action. 
The Board of Education annually adopts a school district budget to determine the number of staff members, to reflect changes in student needs, and to support changes in program offerings. The budget is presented directly to voters for approval on the third Tuesday in May.
 
No person or group of persons acts in the name of the board. All motions require a majority vote before the board can act. A board member is in an official capacity only during an official board meeting.
