The Hudson Falls Central School District Board of Education is made up of nine members who are elected by the voters of the district to serve five-year terms. Members serve without pay. The Board of Education is responsible for the development of policy through which the superintendent administers the educational program. The Hudson Falls Central School District Board of Education is dedicated to providing equal educational opportunities which enable students to acquire the skills, knowledge, and discipline necessary for success in a competitive society.
All citizens are encouraged to participate actively in the development and operation of our schools. It is the responsibility of the entire community to provide input, which will assist the Board of Education if our schools are to continue to develop and provide a program of quality education for the youth of our district.
The Board invites interested residents of the community to attend public meetings of the Board at 6:30 p.m. in the high school. Board committees and meeting dates and times are listed here on the website. Special board meetings called during the year are advertised on our webpage.
Board Docs is our new online platform for accessing meeting schedules, agendas, minutes, and policies. Visit the district Board Docs page here.

Unless noted, all meetings are held in high school.
With Pride, we are the Hudson Falls Tigers.
We exist to create opportunities for students to become confident lifelong learners and successful, engaged members of the larger Tiger community.
For all students, we believe supportive relationships, broad opportunities, and high expectations pave the way for each individual to grow, reach their potential, and fulfill their purpose.
Board of Education Goals
Open Meetings Law and Public Comment
In accordance with the Open Meetings Law, it is essential to the maintenance of a democratic society that the public business be performed in an open and
public manner and that the citizens of this state be fully aware of and able to observe the performance of public officials, attend and listen to the deliberations and decisions that go into the making of public policy.
While we welcome and invite the public into our scheduled meetings, we ask that you address the Board during a meeting in the following manner:
- Please wait to be called upon by the Board President.
- When called, state your full name.
- Direct your comments to the Board; do not turn and speak to the audience.
- Keep your comments as concise as possible.
- Speakers are expected to treat others with respect, confining their remarks to School District issues.
- Do not use the public speaking portions of Board meetings to make personal statements about any individual, including students, employees, or coaches. Engaging in any commentary that is slanderous or abusive may cause the Board President to rule any speaker out of order.
- Limit each public comment to three minutes. Board President may limit the time of individual speakers or if multiple speakers are presenting the same viewpoint.
