Parent Representatives to a Board Committee

  • The Rochester Board of Education is a seven-member board elected by the citizens of Rochester to direct and oversee the operations of the school district. Among the duties of the Board of Education is the responsibility to serve on Board Committees addressing six key focus areas.

    The Board invites parents and legal guardians of students currently attending the Rochester City School District to serve as Advisory Members of the Board's committees. The Board recognizes the role that parents play in the academic success of our students, and requests that parents play an active part in the fiscal oversight and accountability functions of the Board.

    Depending on your interests and experience, the Board Committees offer many opportunities to represent the best interests of parents while serving the Rochester community.
