Like public school systems, BOCES are governed by a policy-making board of education. The 11 members of the Questar III board serve three-year terms and are elected by component boards from Rensselaer, Columbia, and Greene counties through a special vote held each April. BOCES Board members represent and are accountable to our component school boards. The duties and responsibilities of the Board members include:

  • Appointing BOCES district superintendents (subject to the approval of the Commissioner of Education)
  • Setting policies for the organization and plans for the future
  • Providing shared services and programs to component districts
  • Employing teachers and staff to deliver programs and services
  • Preparing an annual BOCES budget and overseeing spending
