About the Board

The Board of Education is committed to planning and supporting the best possible program of education for the Fairport Central School District.  As the official policy-making body of the school district, the Board of Education directs the education of students and guides the operation of the District.  The Board establishes policies and has final control over local school matters except where limited by law.

Among its duties, the Board is responsible for:

  • Adopting an annual budget and approving all expenditures
  • Approving all hiring
  • Approving curriculum, courses, and textbooks
  • Making decisions regarding the maintenance and operation of school facilities, school renovation or construction

The Board also appoints the Superintendent of Schools as its chief executive officer who is responsible for the effective operation of the entire school program. The Superintendent is responsible for establishing curricular programs, promoting student achievement, and developing plans and programs. The Superintendent collaborates with the Board of Education to establish policies for Board action and the success of all students.

As a resident of the Fairport Central School District, you are cordially invited to attend Board of Education meetings. We invite our community members to comment on matters regarding FCSD. At each meeting, time for public comment is included. This is a time for the Board to listen and, when appropriate, a response will be provided by an administrator. Speakers are asked to state their names and addresses and as a courtesy to others, limit their comments to three minutes as per Board policy. Critical comments naming specific personnel are to be addressed privately to protect the rights of the individuals. An informed and active school community are essential components of our quality schools.

The decisions of your elected Board of Education affect your child and the future of all children in the community. We encourage you to participate in your school district by

  • Keeping informed and interested in your schools
  • Expressing your views
  • Corresponding with the Board
  • Electing the best qualified Board members
  • Volunteering in schools and on educational committees

We encourage you to utilize this website for information on the district and the Board of Education.  Thank you for supporting the Fairport CSD.

Sincerely,
The Board of Education
