Orchard Park Central School District Board of Education

  • The Board of Education is elected by District voters to govern schools and determine educational policies. Technically, Board members are Local Officials, their authority and duties are defined by the state and federal constitutions and laws as well as by rules and regulations promulgated by the Board of Regents and commissioner of education, and other regulatory agencies. Terms are for three years. Board candidates run at-large instead of for a specific seat. Members of the Board of Education are volunteers. They receive no salary for their work. 

    The Board of Education does not have the day-to-day responsibilities of running a school district, rather their role is oversight and setting policy; the Superintendent of Schools is responsible for all aspects of the district and he/she reports to the Board.  

    The Orchard Park Central School District Board of Education welcomes correspondence from residents, staff, parents and students. To send correspondence to the Board of Education and the Superintendent of Schools via email boe@opschools.org  Please include your full name in the correspondence. Anonymous correspondence will not be read.   Questions or comments about day-to-day operations of the district should be directed to the Superintendent of Schools via email mmcgarrity@opschools.org or by phone at 209-6280.
