The West New York Board of Education trustees serve without compensation, except for the satisfaction they receive from the public service they perform.

The Board of Education’s most important duties include the following; the creation, evaluation, and update of policies for the entire school district; the second is to develop an annual budget for the district; the third is to approve or disapprove the Superintendent’s recommendations in regard to personnel matters and contracts; and finally, the fourth duty of the Board is to act as a communication link between residents of the Town of West New York and the School District.

Board members, in order to carry out their duties effectively and efficiently, receive extensive training through the New Jersey School Boards Association.

The West New York Board of Education welcomes residents to communicate their concerns to the Board by letter, phone call, or a statement under the "public portion” of one of the Board’s meetings.
