About BOE
The Winslow Township Board of Education is comprised of nine community members, each elected to a three-year term. Qualifications to become a school board member include:
  • Be able to read and write
  • Hold U.S. citizenship and one year’s residency in the school district
  • Be registered to vote in the district before filing the nominating petition
  • Have no interest in any contract with, or claim against, the board
  • Not hold office as mayor or member of the municipal governing body or, in the case of county school districts, the county governing body
  • Not simultaneously hold two elective offices
  • Not be disqualified from membership for the conviction of certain crimes. (Within 30 days of election or appointment to the board, a member must undergo a criminal history background investigation through the state Department of Education.)

What are the main responsibilities of board members?

The Board of Education adopts policies under which the school district operates; oversees the budget; approves the curriculum; hires and evaluates the superintendent; represents the public during contract negotiations; and serves as a communications link between the community and the school system.

We encourage the public to attend and participate in the public session meetings of the Winslow Township Board of Education. Regular meetings are typically held at 7:00 p.m. in the Winslow Township Middle School Cafeteria on the second and fourth Wednesday of each month.
