The Binghamton City School District is celebrating the commitment and contributions of its Board of Education during School Board Recognition Week!

October 17-21 is designated as School Board Recognition Week by the New York State School Boards Association (NYSSBA), and just as communities across the state are pausing to say “thank you” to their boards, we here in Binghamton are doing the same.

On Tues., Oct. 18, the district held its annual Board of Education Recognition Breakfast at West Middle School. Featuring wonderful performances by members of the West Middle School Chorus and Orchestra, along with beautiful presents that were handmade by students, the breakfast served as a massive show of gratitude to the school board members’ work. After the breakfast, the board members went on a building tour and took note of some of the newest additions to West Middle School: the dance studio, rock climbing wall, and fitness center.

The impact of our school board, and all school boards, cannot be overstated. It lays the framework for the education of each and every student and serves as the foundation on which the school community is built. School boards of education work tirelessly to develop a vision for districts, provide accountability, and drive the direction of the entire district culture.

Although board meetings are held monthly, that in no way means that board of education members across the state are not working tirelessly on helping their districts. According to the NYSSBA, about two-thirds of New York State’s school board members spend more than six hours per week on school board activities. 

We extend our deepest appreciation to our board members:

Brian Whalen, President

Steve Seepersaud, Vice President
