The Selection Committee for the Mamaroneck School Board was founded in 1946 to find qualified and committed candidates for the Mamaroneck Board of Education.
This organization is made up of 24 private citizens who are elected representatives of the Mamaroneck School District. Members of the group spend each year attending school board meetings and study sessions, speaking with district residents and meeting with district officials (including, but not limited to, the Superintendent, members of the Board of Education, and senior representatives of the PTA) in order to familiarize themselves with the issues facing the district. The Selection Committee then recruits, interviews, and vets candidates for upcoming vacancies, with the goal of endorsing those candidates that it feels can best represent all segments of the community and their diverse interests, meet the needs and demands of the Board of Education position and poise the Mamaroneck Public School system for future success in the ever-challenging and global community in which we live.
Selection Committee members themselves have staggered, three-year terms, and are elected via ballots set up near School Board polling locations. For more information on the Selection Committee or how to serve, please visit our website at www.selectioncommittee.org.
