Board of Education

Meet Our Board Members

The Hamden Board of Education consists of nine members who are elected for staggered four-year terms.  No more than six members shall be from the same political party.  The Mayor shall be an ex-officio member without voting rights.

In addition to elected members, two students are selected by the Board to serve for two-year terms. Although their input is invaluable to Board discussions, student representatives do not have voting rights. Student representatives will not attend executive sessions of the Board nor have access to associated back-up material.
