Running for the BOE

Board of Education Election Information

Members of the Board of Education are elected by the voters of the district to establish policy and direct the administration of our schools.

Voters in the Bethlehem Central School District will elect two members of the Board of Education on May 18th this year.

Board members serve volunteer, three-year terms. They receive no salary or other compensation. Those elected this year will each serve terms beginning July 1, 2021 through June 30, 2024. Individuals are eligible for election to the Board if they are qualified voters of the district (district resident, U.S. citizen, 18 and older) and can read and write. New York State Education Law does not limit the number of terms of office a member may serve.

Nominating petitions must include signatures of 50 qualified voters who reside in the district. Petitions are due no later than 5 p.m. on Monday, April 19. To obtain a petition for the board of education, please contact District Clerk Brittany Barrett via email at or by calling (518) 439-7098 to request your petition.
