Board of Education

A five-member Board of Education, elected by residents of the Watervliet City School District, is responsible for policies and regulations governing public education in the district. Each member serves a three-year term without pay. The superintendent is the chief executive officer of the school district and  reports to the school board. Board meetings are open to the public, and, unless otherwise noted, are held at 6 p.m. on the second or third Thursday of each month in the Watervliet Junior/Senior High School Administrative Conference Room.
