The Avon Board of Education, both as a state agency and as the elected representative body of the citizens of Avon on school matters, is legally responsible for education in this school district. The general mandatory powers and duties of the Board are defined in Title 18A of the New Jersey Statutes. The seven members serve without pay for three-year terms (click here for a list of the Avon Board of Education Members for 2008-2009).
The Board’s responsibilities include: setting and evaluating policy, establishing goals , overseeing that the district and the schools are well run by the administrators they have hired, and adopting a fiscally sound operating budget for the school district (click here for the 2007-2008 School Year Revenue Budget). Board members act on the Superintendent’s recommendations, meet with civic groups, and receive input from parents, students, and community members.
Meetings of the Board are usually held once a month at 7:00 p.m. Click here for meeting dates in 2008-2009. Work sessions are generally held on the preceding the start of the business meeting. These meetings are generally held on the third Wednesday of each month, in the Avon School Media Center.

Time is allotted at each regular public action meeting of the Board for comments from the public. Parents and residents are welcome and encouraged to attend these meetings to share their interests and concerns.
