Role of the School Board

The Mayfield Board of Education is made up of five non-paid citizens who are each elected to serve five-year terms. The board’s main responsibilities and duties are to:

  • Establish district policies;
  • Develop an annual budget for public approval;
  • Approve or disapprove the Superintendent’s recommendations on personnel matters and contracts;
  • Review courses of study and textbooks; and
  • Act as a communication link between residents and the Superintendent.

Other duties include defining the district’s philosophy, setting goals to achieve academic objectives, planning for future needs, and authorizing certain contracts.

Running for a seat on the Board of Education

The Mayfield Central School District announces that qualified residents interested in seeking a seat on the Board of Education must file a Petition for Nomination, which must be signed by at least 25 qualified voters of the district.  Petitions may be obtained in the District Office at the High School and must be returned no later than April 19, 2021.  Candidates must be a qualified voter of the district and must have resided in the district for at least one year prior to their election.

 One five-year term is available for anyone interested in running for the Board.  The five-year seat, presently occupied by Tara Caraco, will become vacant as of June 30, 2021.  The election will be held May 18, 2021 from 12 noon until 8:00 pm in the high school gym lobby.
