About the School Board

The Board of Education is a group of seven Unity School District Residents.  Typically, the Board meets on the second Tuesday of every month in the school's Boardroom.  In addition, occasionally committee meetings and special meetings are held as well.  All types of meetings are posted to alert the general public regarding the meeting's date, time, and location. Postings are placed on the District website and at each local post office. 


Want to "jump" on Board?

A School Board member serves in office for a three-year term.  When a member's term expires, they must be reelected by the public in the Spring election, in order to serve again.  Other interested citizens may also run for the office of School Board as elections are held every year.  Interested residence must be a resident of Unity School District and file a Declaration of Candidacy and Campaign Registration Statement in the District Office prior to the first Tuesday of every January.
