Board of Directors
The Port Allegany School District Board of Directors consists of 11 individuals committed to quality in education. Our board members volunteer their time to represent and ensure the best interests of our students, as they review community input, create or review policies, develop budgets, and establish new programs.
What is a school board?
The superintendent serves as a non-voting member. The solicitor, elected and hired for a stipulated fee by the board, advises the board in legal matters and completes various legal activities involving the school district.
What are the qualifications for school board membership?
What is the role of the superintendent with the school board?
When does your board meet?
School vacations, holidays, budget deadlines, and board reorganization may change these dates and are advertised in advance. Meetings are held in the high school library.
How do you address the board?
Public comment is encouraged and welcomed at both planning meetings and regular monthly board meetings. The following guidelines will permit meetings to move smoothly and allow sufficient time for all comments to be heard:
How do you address individual problems?
If you have a specific question regarding your child, begin by speaking with the teacher involved or with the building principal or administrator. If further discussion is necessary the question may be referred to the superintendent. This procedure enables you to get a direct and immediate response from the individuals directly responsible.
Concerns which remain unanswered may be referred directly to the superintendent. Board members are responsible for matters which affect the entire district, and they should only be contacted about individual problems if the family's concerns have not been addressed by the various staff members involved.
