Meet your Board of Education
Looking for the schedule of Board meetings? See the upcoming events at the bottom of this page.
Durham's Board of Education consists of seven non-partisan members. One member is elected at-large, four are elected from specific districts, and two are elected from consolidated districts. Board members serve four-year staggered terms.
Board members are paid a regular monthly stipend of $800 per month; the chairman receives $900 per month. Board members are also reimbursed travel expenses incurred for attending workshops or conferences or for conducting official board business.
The Board of Education elects a chairperson and vice-chairperson to serve one-year terms. The superintendent of schools acts as an ex officio member of the board and serves as secretary of the board.
For questions about the Board or any upcoming meetings, contact Sandra C. White, Executive Assistant, at 919-560-2502 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
