The seven-member Board of Education is elected by the registered voters of the district. Board members serve for three-year terms without pay and are responsible under state law for establishing the policies governing the operation of the East Meadow Schools.

Communications Meetings of the Board of Education begin at 7 p.m. The Board provides opportunities for members of the audience to speak at these meetings. Persons following protocol may address the Board by making statements, requesting information, and presenting particular viewpoints. The public is invited to attend all meetings on those dates listed on the calendar pages. The Board of Education may schedule additional public meetings as necessary on topics of importance, including those related to instruction and budget.

Work Sessions of the Board are held each month. Pursuant to the New York State Open Meetings Law, the public is invited to attend work sessions of the Board except on those occasions when matters concerning legal, personnel, acquisition, sale or lease of property, and particular matters of finance are scheduled for discussion. These areas are considered by the Board in executive sessions. The Board of Education values input from members of the public and welcomes attendance at all business meetings of the Board. However, public comments regarding staff or other personnel matters, collective bargaining issues, pending legal matters, and particular in-process items of finance are not subjects for public comment or discussion. The Board of Education welcomes input on these issues in written form.

Residents who wish to attend School Board work sessions are advised to call the Secretary to the Board at 876-7516.
