Regular Board of Education meetings are held monthly at 6:00 p.m. in the Maple Grove Cafeteria at Maple Grove Jr./Sr. High School, 3980 Dutch Hollow Road, Bemus Point, NY. Public comment is encouraged and welcomed as indicated on the meeting agenda. Each of the seven members of the Bemus Point Central School District Board of Education is elected at large for a three-year term by voters at the District's annual budget vote and election, held on the third Tuesday in May.

Annual Vote… The District's annual election takes place in May. Any resident wishing to vote on the school budget and candidates for the Board of Education, must be at least 18 years of age, a U.S. Citizen, and a District resident for 30 days preceding the vote. Voters MUST present ID as proof of residency.

Consider running for the Board of Education… Any individual who has resided in the District for one year can qualify for election to the Board of Education by presenting a nominating petition of no less that 24 names (of qualified District residents) to the District Clerk thirty (30) days prior to the election. Board of Education nominating petitions and absentee ballots are available from the District Clerk, 3980 Dutch Hollow Road, Bemus Point , NY.

In an effort to keep the public well informed, following each meeting, we will be posting a Board Meeting Summary which will list the details of topics discussed and actions taken by the Board of Education. We hope you find this summary helpful, knowing you have the correct information about the activities occurring in your school district.
