Board of Education


For more than 200 years, the tradition of excellence in the Summit Public Schools has been supported by an involved community and strong and effective Boards of Education. The Board operates under the guidance of a mission statement and shared values as well as the Summit Public Schools mission statement, developed with input from the entire school community and Summit residents. The Board's mission is "to set and uphold the standards by which we provide the students of the Summit Public Schools with a superior educational experience, in a way that is equitable, financially responsible, and free of political influence."

Members of the public who are interested in learning more about a Board of Education and how public meetings work are encouraged to look through the following brochure provided by the New Jersey School Boards Association:
