PROVIDENCE, R.I. — Mayor Jorge Elorza today announced that the Providence School Board Nominating Commission is seeking qualified applicants to serve on the Providence School Board.
“Serving as a Providence School Board member is a rewarding way to engage in the future success of Providence students,” said Mayor Jorge O. Elorza. “I encourage anyone that is interested in serving the City and committed to serving in the best interest of our students and families to apply today.”
The School Board works to establish policy that guides the Superintendent in the administration and operation of the schools, monitoring progress towards direct goals and engaging the community in supporting schools. Each appointment term totals three years, with this year’s applicants beginning in January 2023 and ending in January 2026. School board members whose terms are expiring may apply and be considered for reappointment.
The School Board application deadline is Monday, December 19, 2022, at 4:30PM. The School Board job description and application are available online. Additionally, the School Board Nominating Commission will conduct a public forum with all applicants on Thursday, December 22, 2022, at 5:30PM at Providence Career and Technical Academy (PCTA) located at 41 Fricker St, Providence, RI 02903. Once applicants have completed both steps, the Commission will make recommendations to Mayor-elect Smiley and upon taking office, School Board nominees will be reviewed by the incoming City Council.
