About the Stamford Board of Education

The Stamford Public Schools (SPS) is governed by a group of nine elected officials, referred to as the Board of Education (BOE). Each BOE member is elected to serve three consecutive years and is eligible for an unlimited number of terms. The BOE is responsible for ensuring high-quality education for SPS students and overseeing operations of the schools. 

 The duties of the BOE include:
  • Appoint and evaluate the superintendent of schools.
  • Establish and monitor school policies for effectiveness.
  • Prepare and adopt, with the aid of the superintendent, an annual budget for submission to Stamford's fiscal boards.
  • Interpret the needs of the Stamford community with regard to SPS, and keep the community informed of the goals, values, conditions, and requirements of the SPS.
Board meetings  
Regular monthly board meetings are generally held on the 4th Tuesday of each month and always start at 7:00 p.m.  The BOE also has five working committees, each chaired by a BOE member. Committee meetings are generally held on the 1st, 2nd and 3rd Tuesday of each month. 
All BOE regular, special and committee meetings are open to the public and are held in the BOE board room on the 5th floor of the Stamford Government Center, unless otherwise indicated on the meeting agenda. The public is provided with an opportunity to address the BOE at the regular monthly meetings only. The public cannot address the BOE at a special meeting or any committee meetings.  All community members who wish to address the BOE must email Jennifer Gonzalez - Board Secretary 1 hour prior to the start of the Regular Meeting. Each community member is allowed three minutes to address the BOE. Any inquiry that the BOE and/or superintendent deems appropriate will be answered at a later date by the superintendent or a designee. Community members should know that the BOE will not respond to questions or comments during the regular board meeting. To contact all board members use: BOE e-mail.
Meeting agendas are posted at least 24 hours in advance with the Town Clerk and on the district website. You will be notified when a meeting agenda is posted on the website, by subscribing to meeting agendas.  Each Friday, public documents related to an upcoming regular or committee meeting can be found at: BOE Public Package.
