Oaklyn Board of Education

The Oaklyn Board of Education is a 9-member board comprised of residents of Oaklyn. Members serve for three years. A listing of the current Board members and their terms of office, can be found to the left.

School Board members uphold and enforce all laws, rules and regulations of the State Board of Education, and court orders pertaining to schools. Responsibility of School Board Members in New Jersey is confined to policy making, planning and appraisal, and helping to frame policies and plans after consultation with those affected by them. A Board member’s responsibility is not to administer the schools, but to see that they are well run. Each member of a Board of Education, before entering upon the duties of his office, takes an oath of office and is required to abide by a state-mandated Code of Ethics for School Board Members which includes making decisions in terms of the educational welfare of children and developing and maintaining public schools that meet the individual needs of all children regardless of ability, race, creed, sex, or social standing. The Oaklyn School Board is a member of the New Jersey School Boards Association.

Qualifications to become a school board member in the State of New Jersey include being a citizen and resident of the district for at least one year immediately preceding election; be able to read and write; be registered to vote in the district, and not to be disqualified as a voter. Information on running for a seat on the Board of Education can be found here.
