To serve on the board, members must be at least 18 years old and reside in the Northeast Bradford School District for at least one year prior to seeking a term. By law, each school board consists of nine members who serve their terms without pay. The Board meets the first week in December and elects a president and vice-president for the coming year.

The duties and responsibilities of the school board members are to:

  • Profess a deep desire to serve children and a strong belief in the values of public schools and local control of public education.

  • Use their vested authority to establish, equip, furnish, operate, and maintain the public schools.

  • Establish policies necessary for the governing of the school district, its employees, students, and all people entering school grounds or premises.

  • Ensure educational opportunities for all students of the school district.

  • Appoint a Superintendent of Schools and invest such powers in the superintendency as may be legally delegated.

  • Elect a treasurer and a secretary.

  • Act on personnel and related matters as recommended by the Superintendent of Schools.

  • Approve the annual budget.

  • Adopt a master calendar annually.

  • Enter into contracts with all personnel in the manner required by Pennsylvania law.

  • Levy taxes to maintain the schools and the educational system.


  • School Board members are both state and local officials. Though elected locally, they serve on behalf of the state legislature.

  • School Boards are units of local government, the only such unit spelled out in the state constitution.

  • School Boards are legislative bodies, empowered to set policy within the framework of the statutes enacted by the legislature.

  • School Boards participate in long-range, strategic planning, and evaluate the results.
