Board of Education

About the Board

Valley Stream Union Free School District 30 is governed by a Board of Education comprised of five community members. Individuals who sit on the Board of Education are responsible for setting the policy under which the schools operate. Each Board member must be a member of the community. Board members are elected to serve for five-year terms of office.

The Board of Education usually meets twice monthly. Each of these meetings is open to the public. The first of these meetings is a regularly scheduled work session meeting; the second meeting is the regularly scheduled Board of Education meeting.

The work session meeting is usually held on the next to the last Monday of the month, while the regular Board meeting is usually held on the last Monday of the month at 8:00 p.m. at Shaw Avenue School.
