 Board of Education

The Board of Education(BOE) is the official policy-making body of the school district.  It is responsible for carrying out the laws and regulations pertaining to the education of our children. 

Responsibilities of the Board of Education

The Hunter-Tannersville Central School Board of Education is an elected policy-making body of the school district.  Our school board consists of five members who serve for five-years (July 1 – June 30) without pay. A board seat is up for election each year and the election is combined with the day of the budget vote. 

The BOE is responsible for establishing a quality education in the district for all students.  The BOE also serves as a liaison between the district and the community.

The BOE:

  • Defines the philosophy of the district
  •  Establishes, maintains and updates policies
  •  Recruits and hires the superintendent
  • Sets goals to achieve the district’s mission
  • Adopts and monitors a budget that is aligned to the district’s goals and vision
  • Sets the tax levy
  • Approves the hiring of all personnel and establishes the conditions of employment
  • Approves all contractual bargaining agreements in the district

Our Vision & Philosophy

Our Vision

Hunter-Tannersville Central School District continues to focus on ensuring “Excellence in Learning For All” within our school district. 


Our Philosophy

In preparing individuals to develop their fullest potential for living in the society of today and tomorrow, the BOE and the staff of the school district:

I.     Recognize their responsibility to help meet the physical, intellectual and emotional needs of children; particularly the needs to inquire, learn, think, and create; to establish aesthetic, moral and ethical values; and to relate satisfactorily to others in social situations involving family, work, government and recreation.

II.    Accept primary responsibility for giving students a mastery of the basic skills of learning, thinking and problem solving; for teaching them to use the various media of self-expression; for instilling in them a knowledge of the social and natural sciences; for acquainting them with the richness of our heritage; and for stimulating them to productive work in various areas of human endeavor.

III.  Acknowledge the importance of their supplemental role to the home and other social agencies in developing habits and attitudes which make for effective personal living, the maintenance of optimum physical and mental health, and the establishment of sound moral, ethical, aesthetic values.


Realizing that education, as here defined, is a lifelong process, the school system seeks to orient its graduates toward various types of post-secondary education and further training and study of many types; and to provide educational opportunities particularly suited to the needs of adults, both as individuals and citizens in a democracy.
