Earl W. Wilbourn, Sr. (term expires 2017)A nine-member board of School Directors is responsible for the operation of the Susquehanna Township schools. The School Board delegates administrative responsibilities to the Superintendent of Schools who, in turn, delegates to the administrators such responsibilities as the proper performance of their duties may require.
Members of the Board serve without pay and are elected to four-year terms on a staggered basis. They are elected at-large on the first Tuesday in November in each odd numbered year, and they take office on the first Monday in December, following their election. In the event a member resigns between elections, the successor is appointed by the remaining members of the Board to serve only until the next School Board election.
The school board meets at 7 p.m. twice a month in the district administrative office unless otherwise noted. Meetings in 2017 will be listed here, on the district website calendar and advertised in the media.
