Mount Markham Board of Education
With the resignation of Jack Kilty after 14 years of service to the district, the Mount Markham Board of Education seeks a community resident willing to join its governance team.
The board of education is the corporate body that oversees and manages the school district’s affairs. Service on the school board includes a commitment to two board meetings each month. The board of education works closely with the superintendent of schools, who manages the day to day operation of the school district.
The Mount Markham board is comprised of seven members elected to three year terms. The community resident selected to fill the seat vacated by Mr. Kilty will serve the remainder of the school year and then will be asked to participate in the school board election in May to gain voter support to complete the remaining term of Mr. Kilty through June, 2018.
To be eligible for board appointment to this position, you must be a qualified voter in the district, be at least 18 years of age, and have been a resident of the community for an uninterrupted period of one year. The new board member cannot be a current employee of the school district and must meet all eligibility requirements.
The Mount Markham Board of Education invites interested community members to deliver a letter of interest to the district clerk, Mary Holmes, by 4PM on Monday November 14. The district office is located at 500 Fairground Road, West Winfield, NY 13491. If you have questions about this opportunity, please call 315-822-2824.
