Your School Board is comprised of seven members who have been elected by the citizens of Wellsville. The main objectives of the Board are to handle district financial matters, create district policy, and hire faculty and staff to administer those policies.

Board Meetings are held on the fourth Monday of every Month at 6:30 P.M. They are held in the conference room across from the blue gym.

The public is welcome, and encouraged, to attend the monthly Board meeting. If you do wish to address the Board at a monthly meeting, you must fill out a public participation form. These forms can be obtained from the district office. Please note that you must have the form filled out and returned at least two weeks before the scheduled meeting. This will give the Board time to include you on the agenda and prepare for your concerns.
