    A school board member in New York State serves as a state official. The board's powers are derived from the state Constitution, laws of New York State, and rulings of the state Commissioner of Education.  As elected representatives, board members ensure that the school remains responsive to the needs of district residents by serving as a link between school and community. The Board of Education establishes official policy and sets goals for the school district. Board decisions can be made only by the Board acting as a whole in a public meeting.

    The Sherman Central School District Board of Education consists of five members, elected at-large by the voters of the district at the annual meeting. Each member is elected for a five-year term.    

    The terms of office for each member are as follows:
    • Brian Bates - July 1, 2019 to June 30, 2024
    • Timothy Sears - July 1, 2020 to June 30, 2025
    • Emily Reynolds - July 1, 2021 to June 30, 2026
