Greene Central School District Board of Education
Our board of education is composed of seven members who are elected by residents of the school district to serve three year terms. Together, they are the leadership team that defines the vision, goals and policy for the Greene School District.
 
According to the New York State School Boards Association, a member of a board of education in New York State takes on one of the most important responsibilities that can be assigned to any citizen: helping to plan the education of the community’s youth. The board oversees the education of students and is responsible for school district operations, but does not directly run the district’s day-to-day operations. Greene’s board members are charged with representing the entire community, advocating for public education, and serving as the stewards of the district’s resources.
 
The board of education holds meetings open to the public on the first and third Wednesday of each month at 6:00 p.m. in the board of education conference room located at the South Canal Street campus. Meeting agendas, minutes, and related documents are available to the public on this website.

In 1993 I graduated from Chenango Forks High School and Broome Tioga BOCES. Greene has been my home for 24 years. My wife and I have two children, who are students in the Intermediate and High School buildings. I have been a municipal highway employee for 20 years, most recently holding the position of Highway Superintendent for the Town of Greene. I want to represent your voice on the school board because I believe in our school district and want to help create positive changes for our community, students and faculty.
