Board of Education

  • The Rush-Henrietta Central School District is governed by a seven-member Board of Education elected by the registered voters of the district. Members are volunteer public officials who serve, without pay, for three-year terms. As elected representatives of district residents and as officers of the state of New York, board members must carry out duties required by the state Legislature, the Board of Regents, and the state Commissioner of Education. The board establishes policies for the operation of the district and the superintendent of schools carries out these policies.

    Letters to and questions about the Board of Education can be addressed to Karen Flanigan, school district clerk, at 2034 Lehigh Station Road, Henrietta, NY 14467. The school district clerk also can be reached by phone at (585) 359-5010 or by e-mail at kflanigan@rhnet.org.
