The Berlin CSD Board of Education and Superintendent A. Joseph Dhara felt it was important to define who we are as a District, and who we are not. As our society has become increasingly polarized over the past several years, the District felt it was a good time to restate our values and guiding principles. Ultimately, our top priority is to the student, to whom we are committed and will remain so for years to come.
Monthly BOE meetings are held at 7:15 p.m. at the Berlin Middle High School on the third Tuesday of the month (most months – February, April, May and July are exceptions).
The Board of Education is comprised of seven members elected by district residents. All members serve without pay for three year terms. Under the Education Law of New York State, the Board is responsible for the education of students who attend the schools in the district; for the preparation of the annual budget, for district adherence to state law and State Education Department regulations concerning the conduct of the public schools. The Superintendent of Schools is charged with the administration of Board policies.
